Well, I do the easy part, you're doing the invaluable part of
providing us all with a great tool -- tramp.

I've pulled the current version from CVS, so will let you know if I
see the issue again.

I've been slightly concerned that some of my bash history files
are filling up with tramp commands, and I've increased the size to
1000 so that I can see the complete log of commands on the remote
machine. (The debug file does have
 $ # Waiting 30s for `HISTFILE=$HOME/.tramp_history; HISTSIZE=1'
) and on one of the machines (a Linux box) I only see the expected 
 exec env 'PS1=$ ' /bin/sh

I'll send more details if I managed to get more conclusive evidence.

Thank you for that explaination.  I realise the error of my ways, I
forgot that I'd tar'ed the lisp files from my CVS directory into my
emacs area, so was using 
 cvs update -d
in the wrong directory, and so no files were updated.
