Sorry for jumping in so late.  Are you reading or writing a file, and
is the mimencode running locally or remotely?  (Well, you are using
sudo, I think, so it's difficult to say which one is local and which
one is remote.  But I hope you understand what I mean.)

Frobbing the variable tramp-chunksize means that Emacs sends its
output to the shell more slowly.  Hm.

Also, the value 2000 works for you, but normally, people need to
choose a value like 500.  So perhaps the test doesn't catch this
situation: for you, it works to send 2000 bytes at a time, but the
test only tries to send 1000.

Perhaps you could try the test with a larger number of bytes, say
