This machine worked with Tramp until yesterday.  All that's changed is
that I did a Bazaar pull of Emacs this morning.  Before that I was using
a build that was at most 4 weeks old, but unfortunately I don't have the
exact info.  Do you want me to bisect?

I don't understand how that can help.  That just brings me back to the
broken state I reported in the bug.
