OK, I've changed the code that for the _first_ hop it uses "|| exit"
instead of the echo. Double ampersands are not applicable, because we
want to exit in an error case only. The string dumped by the echo
command was not recognized, I have no idea what's going on under

I've tested it shortly on a hijacked Windows XP machine; seems to be
OK. Maybe you or somebody else can crosscheck it; the change is
committed to Tramp CVS. If there are no objections, it will appear
with the next Tramp 2.1 release.
