I've just downloaded and installed tramp-2.1.4 for emacs 21.2.1 (OSX
10.4.3). It's almost-but-not-quite working.

I'm using the default method to connect to remote servers. However, for
some reason, it's not dealing with my .ssh/config file correctly. On one
remote machine, I have a different username. If I do
ssh machine
from the command line, the config file is read, and the ssh goes ahead
fine. However, if I do
in emacs, it tries logging in with my _local_ user at machine (however,
it is still expanding <machine> into the fully qualified domain name).
Some of the .ssh/config is working, as evidenced by:
where ruser is the remote user. This version even successfully uses the
available ssh key to do the authentication. Have I missed something obvious?

As an additional issue, this particular machine doesn't like tramp
messing around with HISTORY and HISTFILE. I got locked out of my
account: messing with those variables triggered an intrusion alert. I've
zapped that bit from tramp.el, but I thought you should be aware of the

Thanks in advance,
