Good.  So in principle, Tramp works.  Now what remains is the small
task (errr...) or figuring out which part of your customization makes
the file-name-handler-alist go bad.  For whatever reason, your normal
Emacs setup leads to a wrong file-name-handler-alist setting.  As I
can't see your normal Emacs setup, I can't say why or how that

One idea is to use lines like the following to show
file-name-handler-alist in various places of your init, so you can
see where it goes wrong.

    (message "Got here with %s" file-name-handler-alist)
    (sit-for 3)

Adjust the number of seconds to your taste.
