Hi Philip & Akber, 

I don't know if it's the network because the newer versions of emacs on the 
network don't have the "Process connection broken by remote peer" 
error message. 

We do have a lot of customizations to our emacs install. Is there a way to 
launch a "vanilla" version to ignore those customizations. If so, we can try 
that and set the proxy in the .emacs file and see if the behavior changes.

You could add a

    (debug-on-variable-change 'file-name-handler-alist)

to the beginning for your init.el or .emacs, and see if the debugger pops up. 
But I think this is not likely.

It sounds like something to do with networking, but I cannot say for sure. Can 
you verify that this is not related to your local network?
Eg. by using Tor or a VPN. If not, I think it would be better to open a proper 
bug report (M-x report-emacs-bug), so that the maintainers take a look at the
