Andrew Choi gave me the fix:

Tramp seems to require process-connection-type to be set to t to use
ssh.  Unfortunately as it stands, the default value of
process-connection-type is t when started from a terminal and nil
when  started to run with Carbon GUI.  Since you're running under
Panther,  please try setting process-connection-type to t in a
startup file and  see if tramp/ssh will work correctly in both cases.

Ah, yes.  I don't like this.

It's working well for me. Is there a price I don't know that I'm paying?

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.

I'm not sure that the *x methods are. I always invoke tramp as a side effect of opening a file like /address@hidden:file

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.
