Dear Michael,

Something just occurred to me and I tried it out, and I am hoping it
sheds some light.

Firstly, I tried using some alternative TRAMP methods: FTP and sudo.
Neither work on an emacs -Q.

Then I thought: maybe this is something to do with my system account.
So I ran sudo emacs -Q, and from there everything worked again.  I
copied the SSH key for athena to /root and even that worked.

Have you ever seen something like this before where a non-root user
couldn’t use TRAMP but root could?

I have new hope.
