This fix won't work for Emacs since its make-auto-save-file-name
function does not accept arguments.


Recent versions of Emacs have their own mechanism for redirecting
auto-save files elsewhere: there is a variable
auto-save-file-name-transforms which is applied to the filename.  So
the Tramp method isn't really needed for new Emacsen, only for old

Does XEmacs have a similar mechanism?

If so, then it might be best to disable the Tramp auto-save machinery
