Finally, I've found 2 additional bugs 2b corrected:

- in tramp-ftp.el there are more ange-ftp functions needing protection
  for recursive call. Fixed in Tramp CVS.

- in ange-ftp.el, there's an error in ange-ftp-insert-directory. The
  first parameter of ange-ftp-expand-symlink must be the local file
  name but the whole file name. The following patch would fix that,
  based on ange-ftp.el HEAD in Emacs CVS:

home/albinus> diff -u ange-ftp.el.orig ange-ftp.el
--- ange-ftp.el.orig    Fri Apr  4 23:32:20 2003

For me, everything is fine now except the case of a symlink to a
symlink to a directory on a remote host, which should be a rare case.

Kai: could you, please, verify this, and commit the ange-ftp patch to
CVS if you agree?

Best regards, Michael.
