If you open a connection to the remote host in the same way that
Tramp opens a connection, and then you type the same commands that
Tramp sends, what happens?

In particular, it would involve doing

    uudecode -p >/some/remote/file/name <<'EOF'

And then sending the whole uuencoded shebang (which you can copy and
paste from the *debug tramp/foo* buffer), and then


I'm guessing that Tramp is sending the data too fast, but I'm not
sure.  Therefore, if you want to do the same, then you have to
arrange for some way to insert the data into the shell really fast.

It's also not clear to me how Tramp can circumvent this.  Of course,
Tramp could send the data in pieces and wait a bit after each piece.
But how long should it wait?
