Sorry. New occurrence of the no Id error, flushed with 
tramp-cleanup-connection (/bin/id found on remote host).

More details on 'exec /bin/bash --login' (same user):
 ~/.bash_profile run, but not only PS1 overwritten,
 but also PATH (which means that I pretty much have to re-run it)

Confirmed from the debug buffer (I have to wrap some lines for gmane):

11:51:40.258167 tramp-send-command (6) # exec env ENV='' \
PROMPT_COMMAND='' PS1=\#\$\  PS2='' PS3='' /bin/sh
11:51:40.887167 tramp-open-connection-setup-interactive-shell (5) # \

11:51:41.903167 tramp-send-command (6) #
PATH=/usr/xpg4/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin; \
export PATH
11:51:43.570167 tramp-send-command (6) # cd
/view/emagiro_t7/vobs/atcctest/ClearCase-SyncTree/; \
exec /usr/bin/bash --noediting -i

This doesn't seem to be a setting of mine...?
Unless... I do have: explicit-shell-file-name "/usr/bin/bash"...
This was however meant for my local host!

The question is: I understand that tramp might need to set a friendly
environment for the time of establishing the connection.
But how am I supposed to restore my own environment after the 
connection has completed?
Actually, the prompt I am left with is not the one set in the debug 
buffer transcript. This one was: ///525d2765eba4e0b1750fbb40e924da1f#$,
not merely #$
