In the past I needed to do a similar thing, except I was trying to escape single and double quotes that could appear in arguments. It's hard because the local shell interprets them and then the remote shell does likewise. A lot of escaping was needed.

With this tramp situation, both my local and remote shells are bash. And they are fine with emacs 24.3, so some regression has crept in somewhere.

Thanks for looking into this Michael. I actually only started using tramp very recently, and am getting some good value from it already. Drop me a line when you have something for me to test.

Hey Michael,

Hi Rob,

I made that change for scp to run in verbose mode. The debug log is
attached. There appears to be a problem with escaping certain special
characters in the shell command.

Yes, indeed. Finally, I could reproduce it locally with some more
sophisticated file names (containing spaces and other special
characters). Ordinary file names do not cause pain in my local
environment, I guess it is due to escaped characters handling of the
used remote shell.

I'll work on this next days. Shall be fixed before the next Emacs 24.4
pretest, hopefully.


Thanks for testing, and best regards, Michael.
