I couldn't reproduce it here, running Tramp 2.1.15-pre. According to the
ChangeLog, there was a bug fix which could be related, but I don't
remember the exact details.

Do you see a chance to check it with that version (from CVS)? If not, or
if the problem still exists with that Tramp version, please set
tramp-verbose to at least 6, and rerun your test. I would be interested
in the resulting trace.

Best regards, Michael.
