I'm trying to use Emacs to edit remote file at work, but I'm having trouble.

This is my setup:
* OS: Windows XP SP3.
* GNU Emacs 24.0.94 (almost latest trunk).
* Putty 0.62 installed, with its related utilities (pscp, plink, psftp).

>From a cmd.exe console, I can login to a remote host using the command
"plink my_host" and giving my credentials.  However, the remote host
returns strange characters just before the the prompt text:

  [Copyright messages and stuff...]

  You have mail.
          ←H        ←H        ←H        ←H        ←H        ←H
←H        ←H

Now, from emacs (-Q), if I do:
  (cd "/plink:address@hidden:~/")

Emacs ask me the password and after I provide it, hangs (I can cancel
the operation with several `C-g').

Looking at the *tramp/plink address@hidden buffer (attached to this
email), I see that the login has been successful, but Emacs somehow is
not aware of that (probably because of the above-mentioned strange

So, I'd like to know if I can do something to make Emacs work in this
case, or Emacs can be adapted instead.
