bug#17900: 24.4.50; Tramp Does not recognize .ssh/config file

Hi Michael

Thank you for the reply. The tramp in Emacs default package for Mac worked fine in identifying the ~/.ssh/config file. Even gnu FAQ gives examples of how to modify this file to modify tramp connections (https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/tramp/Frequently-Asked-Questions.html). 

This is the problem that I face due to installing one of the nightly releases (I had to do this because the default package was crashing continuously). The main trouble is the double validation (RSA Token id +passwd) that I need to provide to connect to server files. Tramp does not prompt me to input the token id and fails after trying to connect with the server.

Tramp uses own settings of ControlMaster and ControlPath. If you want to
use the default values, apply (setq tramp-use-ssh-controlmaster-options nil)

See (info "(tramp) Frequently Asked Questions")
