It turned out to be configuration error on my part. Tramp-2.1.3 is
working great for me now.

This probably isn't the right forum for this question, but I wonder
why tramp sends Perl mime-encode and mime-decode scripts, even if
working mimencode program is found on the host. Seems a bit wasteful
for me, and I think (may be wrong) some earlier versions didn't do

Neither do I. I did a quick check, but couldn't find the reason.

Adding " " in tramp-action-login like this:

    (process-send-string nil (concat (or user (user-login-name)) " "

fixes the problem. I have no idea why, this may be related to the
end-of-line character on Windows (there is a workaround for sending
password, maybe something similar would help for user name as well).

However, everything is working fine with Tramp-2.1.3, so I am using it
right now. Seems to be the best possible workaround ;)

It works fine. No idea why.

There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who
take the credit. Try to be in the first group;
there is less competition there.
