Ah, yes.  I don't like this.

One workaround could be use one of the *x methods.  They are
documented to be good for Windows users, but the Windows users are
experiencing the same pty problem you're seeing.

Using the *x methods is less than perfect because it only works right
with ssh, but Tramp also supports telnet and suchlike.  But maybe it's
good enough for you?

Do the *x methods work?  If so, advice to this effect could be added
to the Tramp manual.  You're not the first Mac user to bring this up.
(But until now I failed to mention the *x methods.)  No sense in
having many people ask, adding it to the docs would be better.
