This is a good indication of your problem, see below.

This configuration is valid for Tramp 2.1. I recommend to upgrade. If
you want to use Tramp 2.0, as bundled with Emacs 22, please read the
provided Tramp manual via Info.

However, Emacs 23 will be released soon(*), so Tramp 2.1 is the version
you will be faced with then.
