Hmm, I will try to extend configure a little bit next days. 'Cause I
don't run RH by myself, I'ld like to (mis)use you as tester. Is it OK?

See the info at "(tramp)Load paths".

"Large" files seem to start upper 500 Bytes. I wouldn't say the
problem is solved, because there's no automatism to detect on which
systems it is necessary to set `tramp-chunksize'. Tramp tries to keep
a "blacklist" of system types where it is necessary. This list is very
short until now: just "hpux" found its way there. If you know other
candidates for that list, please report. A simple test you can find
with "C-h v tramp-chunksize".

Best regards, Michael.
