Right. In my .tramp I do change it already this way:

; under HP-UX we need the "remsh" instead of "rsh"
(if (string-equal system-type "hpux")
    (setcar (cddr (assoc "rsh" tramp-multi-connection-function-alist))
            "remsh %h -l %u%n")

    (setq my-tramp-methods tramp-methods)
    (while my-tramp-methods
      (let ((cdr (cdr (assoc 'tramp-rsh-program (car my-tramp-methods)))))
        (if (string-equal "rsh" (car cdr))
            (setcar cdr "remsh"))
        (setq my-tramp-methods (cdr my-tramp-methods))))))

But it's better to have this set in tramp.el already.

Sounds resonable.

I'll apply both patches tonight to CVS.

Best regards, Michael.
