Thanks for the reply.....Is Tramp implemented with hg (mercurial)?
No, it has nothing to do with Tramp.
As it happens my remote code is in a Mercurial repository but I had
this bug when I tried to simply open the file..... So I'm confused how
mercurial entered into it
Emacs always loads the package vc.el. When you open a file in Emacs, it
tries to find out whether this file is related to any VCS, and in case
of yes, it will tell you the status.
If you don't need vc.el, you shall disable it. Apply
(setq vc-handled-backends nil)
