OK. So I propose you to throw away the 2.2.9 files (they are useless w/o
a fitting tramp-loaddefs.el). Soon there will be Emacs 24.4, and you get
it for free.

The usual words: send the debug buffer, with tramp-verbose set to 6.

A "remote current directory" is something with Tramp syntax :-) All
buffers you open for remote files / directories have default-directory
set to this.

And yes, you could change it with "M-x cd". Usually, that's not necessary.

Like a local one. All you need is that default-directory points to the
remote host. Then "M-x compile" shall know what to do.

Sure. Try "M-x shell" on a remote buffer. I would also recommend "M-x eshell".
