Sorry for my late update as well- a few days after posting, I examined
and changed my emacs options again and got file completion to work for
most of my hosts. There is still one that that it fails on- and that's
a host where tramp didn't even work until I posted some stack traces
here. That machine acts weird. See

"emacs -Q" still fails with that one host. I have tramp-verbose 10
debug output pasted here

(with the hostname altered)

Thanks for looking at it.
