Don't know. I wanted to know whether sshx works for you (because it is
similar to the myssh method I was proposing). Unfortunately, sshx didn't
work for you.

Improving Tramp: likely not. The problem was related to a remote SunOS
machine, which isn't much used these days. So I won't change Tramp with
the risk to introduce other errors. SunOS is famous to be problematic
with Tramp, see the comments in the code.

I'm happy we found a working solution for you.

Honestly, I've lost the history. Sorry.


Best regards, Michael.
