   I am not so sure.  Most of the stuff we had up to now involved

Hangs are pretty bad too, even if they are not crashes.

   Yup.  One must not forget that a buggy version of tramp does not
   imply a regression when compared with 21.3 and no tramp, or an
   equally buggy add-on tramp.  Except for those cases where ange-ftp

I am not completely sure of that.

In emacs-21.3 -q:

file-name-handler-alist's value is 
(("^/[^/:]*\\'" . ange-ftp-completion-hook-function)
 ("^/[^/:]*[^/:.]:" . ange-ftp-hook-function)
 ("\\`/:" . file-name-non-special))

In emacs-21.3.50 -q:

file-name-handler-alist's value is 
(("\\`/[^/:]+:" . tramp-file-name-handler)
 ("\\`/:" . file-name-non-special))

can call file-exists-p or its friends while Tramp is waiting for
output could cause exactly the same problems.
