bug#39389: 27.0.60; A couple of bugs messing with minibuffer completion

Ok I've found a way to reproduce bug 2 and 3 *without* `exec-path-from-shell`.

0. Get on macOS 10.14
1. Install [GPGTools](https://gpgtools.org/), this will put the `gpg`
binary into `/usr/local/bin`
2. env -i /Applications/MacPorts/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs -l
tramp --eval '(setq tramp-verbose 10 exec-path (cons "/usr/local/bin/"
exec-path))' /sudo::
3. Now the minibuffer prompt will be stuck at Tramp: Sending Password.
4. C-g to quit. I've attached a backtrace and the logs in *Messages* for this.
5. The `exec-path` is now `("/usr/local/bin/" "."
"/Applications/MacPorts/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/bin")`. It appears as
long as `.` is part of the search paths and `gpg` can be found in any
of the search paths, the prompt will get stuck.
6. Saving the credentials for `root@localhost` into `~/.authinfo.gpg`
will work around this issue.
