Well, this is too much hassle I fear. We DON'T know which shells, and
which broken implementations of them, are used remotely. So I rather
oppose such a patch.

What do you think about my other proposal, using `tramp-end-of-heredoc'
as marker?

Well, I have similar problems in the very rare case I'm testing under MS
Windows. For that, I use something like

> %HOMEPATH%\Desktop\emacs-25.0.50\bin\emacs.exe -Q -batch -L Y:\src\tramp\lisp 
> -l Y:\src\tramp\test\tramp-tests.el -f ert-run-tests-batch-and-exit

And of course, you can always load tramp-tests.el into your Emacs
session, and run the tests by "M-x ert RET RET"
