Hello Michael,

While waiting for this message to be moderated I was able to
determine the problem through the use of advices.

In this version of tramp the `plinkx` method did not define
`tramp-password-end-of-line` like the `plink` method.  This means
that the entire password does not make it to the server and the
authentication fails.  The latest release of tramp does not have this
issue as this code was revamped about 7 months ago and
`tramp-password-end-of-line` was removed.

A workaround for anyone using tramp 2.2.3 users is to redefine
the `plinkx` method and include the `tramp-password-end-of-line`
as the `plink` method does.

Thanks for your time.
