Sure, this is the connection buffer Tramp needs internally.

So let's assume the problem is gone. Maybe Tramp should be a little
bit more verbose about its inconvenience, but this is another story.

But you should be aware that Tramp now always writes into the
directory "/home/bronger/temp/" on the remote host. If you login under
another user name, this might fail. Using "~/temp/" would be more
general, because the tilde is expanded on the remote host.
