That means that auth-source-* functions are not getting called from
somewhere within `with-parsed-tramp-file-name' when a password is

At least `auth-sources' is correct.  I would encourage you to upgrade
your whole Emacs to the trunk version that will become version 24, if

some significant Tramp and auth-source improvements and your
configuration should just work.  But 23.x will be fine if you want to
stick with it.
