I've digged further. Likely, the problem can be avoided if we disable
command line editing of the shell. Tramp does it already if the remote
shell is zsh; I've added a similar parameter to the bash invocation. For
other shells, like ksh, I haven't found a simple parameter.

For that class of shells, I've added code which installs a temporary
~/.editrc file, containing the line 'edit off'.

Could you please migrate to Tramp from GNU ELPA? On top of this,
install the appended patch.

And pls report, whether it works for you.

Best regards, Michael.
