Could you, please, show the backtrace?

Might be easier if I remember to give some information about my environment:

GNU Emacs 22.3.1 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.14.7) of
2009-02-09 on

Tramp 2.0 hasn't seen so many corrections last time. Would it be an
option for you to switch to Tramp 2.1?
OK, I installed Tramp 2.1.9. Same problem! I tried to mouse-copy a
backtrace into this message but failed, there's some byte code in
there that apparently wasn't liked much by the mouse...

I saved it to a file instead:

You have problems with an echoing shell, which is known for
Busybox. There are some Tramp patches wrt this, even after release of
2.1.9. Why did you choose this? Tramp 2.1.15 is the recent version.

Why? Because I'm stupid and 2.1.9 is sorted alphabetically after 2.1.15 on the download webpage... :o)

But installing 2.1.15 does not remove the problem. A fresh backtrace is available from the same URL:

The error message in the *Messages* buffer is now (with some context):

Tramp: Sending password
Tramp: Found remote shell prompt on `'
File error: Couldn't find exit status of `echo \"`uname -sr`\"'
