Judging from the output of the debug log and the messages buffer, I
can see two things that may be indicators that something is wrong.

First, from my original message, tramp is trying to do 'ls -lnd /'
which of course shows timestamp information.  I don't think this is my
alias because all my 'ls' aliases also include '-A'.  Also, when you
run this you get exactly the output that's seen:

     539 [ taylor @ zeltennia ] : ~ > ls -lnd /
    drwxr-xr-x  17 0  0  512 Feb 21 15:49 /

This matches the temporary directory that tramp makes.

Another thing is that 'ls -ab' is run at some point, but the '-b'
option isn't available on OpenBSD's ls.  Perhaps neither one of these
is directly the cause, but they seem like they may be red flags to me.
