tramp proxies-alist not working for me

I have Aquamacs 1.7 installed on a MBP running 10.5.6. I downloaded
and installed tramp 2.1.15 following the instrauctions at

cd tramp-2.1.15
 ./configure --with-contrib
cp lisp/* ~/Library/Application\ Support/Aquamacs\ Emacs/site-lisp/
--all of this seemed OK.

To ssh into  our work computers e.g. we need
first to ssh into the gateway


and then either

ssh nozzle

or ssh

I have set up ssh from the MBP and between charon and nozzle such that
I do not need a password.

Following the TRAMP 2.1.5 manual I then added to my
~/Library/Preferences/Aquamacs\ Emacs/Preferences.el

(add-to-list 'tramp-default-proxies-alist
                  '("\\." nil "/"))
(add-to-list 'tramp-default-proxies-alist
                  '("\\.aaa\\.bbb\\.ccc\\.uk" nil nil))

[Actually there seems to be a typo in the manual -- it has an extra
single quote after uk:  '("\\.aaa\\.bbb\\.ccc\\.uk'" nil nil))]

Unfortunately, then doing

produces a process that dies. The *Messages* buffer gives:

Tramp: Opening connection for using ssh...
Tramp: Waiting 60s for local shell to come up...
Tramp: Sending command `ssh   -q -e none && exit || exit'
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell [2 times]
File error: Process died
tramp-error: Process died

What have I missed?
