Can you wake Emacs up at that spot with C-g?  If you can, please do
the following:

Switch to the *tramp/foo* buffer.  Now you send commands to the
process with

    M-: (process-send-string nil "COMMAND\n") RET

Always remember the \n at the end.  The first command to send is
something which just looks whether the remote end is alive:


If you see the answer showing up in the buffer, good.  If not, try
sending \C-c (without \n).  Does that wake it up?

Okay, now you send the following commands in order:

    echo xyzzy
    echo xyzzy | tramp_encode
    echo xyzzy | tramp_encode | tramp_decode

and report what happens after each command.

Btw, it might be useful to do C-x h C-w in the *tramp/foo* buffer
after sending each command.

Also, the shell prompt looks strange: it's "/////" preceded and
followed by a newline.  Just so that you know what you're looking at
in the *tramp/foo* buffer.
