Nice lag, eh?

FYI, sshx didn't work any better than good old ssh. I'm still using (setq process-connection-type t) with no apparent ill effects.

Andrew Choi gave me the fix:

Tramp seems to require process-connection-type to be set to t to use
ssh.  Unfortunately as it stands, the default value of
process-connection-type is t when started from a terminal and nil
when  started to run with Carbon GUI.  Since you're running under
Panther,  please try setting process-connection-type to t in a
startup file and see if tramp/ssh will work correctly in both cases.

Ah, yes.  I don't like this.

It's working well for me. Is there a price I don't know that I'm paying?

It's possible that some other thing will fail if
process-connection-type is t.  Hm.  There was some discussion about
this somewhere, but I completely forgot about it.  I don't have a Mac,
so I didn't pay attention to it.

One workaround could be use one of the *x methods.  They are
documented to be good for Windows users, but the Windows users are
experiencing the same pty problem you're seeing.

I'm not sure that the *x methods are. I always invoke tramp as a side
effect of opening a file like /address@hidden:file

C-h v tramp-methods RET

You will see some methods whose names end in x.  That's what I mean.
For example, instead of /ssh:address@hidden:file you could try
/sshx:address@hidden:file.  I think there is also an scpx method.

The Tramp documentation explains that using /address@hidden:file is a
shortcut for /method:address@hidden:file, where the method is the default
method, as set in tramp-default-method or tramp-default-method-alist.
