Hey, Michael.

When I run emacs with -Q, I'm unable to produce the problem! (It's not multishell, per se - I'm unable to produce it via multishell or separately from it, in an emacs started with -Q.) I'll remove the notes in multishell about it, and work on isolating what in my local setup is at fault.

I was mistaken about being mistaken! (-: / )-:

It does fail in emacs -Q. I just needed to be sure that my recipe does *not* allow emacs to convert the destination in a way that fills in the homedir with an explicit path.

I submitted a bug report. The recipe, for the curious (using "example.com" for a host to which you have ssh and sudo access):
  • Start emacs with -Q
  • In any buffer (*scratch* is fine):
    M-Esc (setq default-directory "/ssh:example.com|sudo:address@hidden:")
  • In that same buffer, Esc-x shell
I'd love to know if there's a workaround that I could ship with multishell.

I actually have a workaround, and the premise of it resides in the special conditions I included for the repeating the problem. In order to repeat the problem, you have to specifically use a default-directory that is set to the remote+sudo+homedir format, and not allow something like `(cd path)' to first resolve the home directory to an explicit path. So there's my workaround, for multishell - use `(cd path)', rather than directly setting default-directory.

Upshot is that I believe that there still is a bug worth unravelling, in the way that shells start when default-directory is set to remote+sudo+homedir format, but I can avoid that by using `cd'.

Could you please write a bug report about this? I would like to check
what's up.

Please start with emacs -Q, and set tramp-verbose to 6. There will be a
Tramp debug buffer, which you might append to the bug report.

Thanks, and best regards, Michael.
