I am using Debian unstable with a snapshot of Emacs CVS.

 - Emacs   21.3.50  with   multi-tty   patch  (the   last  change   in
   lisp/Changelog is dated 2005-02-04 by Jay Belanger)
 - Tramp  from this  CVS  (but I  have  also tried  Tramp 2.0.47  from
 - metamail 2.7-46

Note that  I have  successfully decoded the  data of the  debug buffer
with mimencode -u -b too.

I have tried to do the same thing by using two additional hops (ssh to
one machine and  back) and I have just got  additional garbage. I have
also tried with an  empty file. As soon as its size  grows, the end is
also replaced  with garbage.  I have tried  on a remote  machine using
Debian testing  and there  was no  problem. I have  tried on  a remote
machine  using  Debian unstable  and  there  was  no problem.  I  have
reinstalled metamail, no change.

Can I use something else instead  of mimencode ? Is it possible to get
the value of all variables in the environment ?
