This happens if you have some Lisp files compiled with Emacs, but you
use XEmacs. There are subtle differences in handling characters.

In the Tramp directory, you might do the following:

   make clean
   configure --with-xemacs

I'll play a little bit around with, in order to handle
such situations more robust in the future.

Best regards, Michael.
