Tramp plays even less well with Tru64.

   When I connect to a Tru64 4.0d system, running it's "FTP server Digital
UNIX Version 5.60" everything appears to work fine.  However, when I save my
work the save "hangs" for a long time.  The file is written successfully
almost immediately; however, Emacs hangs and the modification flag in the
status bar at the bottom does not change from *'s to dashes.  The hang will
clear successfully after, literally, a minute or two.  A CTRL-G will also
clear the hang, though the status bar and buffer write-status remain set as
"changed, not saved".

   I can use the exact same setup and perform the exact same action to log
onto, modify, and save a file to Linux or Sun systems without any obvious
trouble.  Therefore, it appears to be something to do with Tru64's FTP server.

   An old version of ange-ftp (1.14?) does NOT have this problem.  However,
it does have trouble working with Tramp and can't perform a simple filename
completion because of changes to the code.

   Has anyone else experienced a similar problem using EmacsW32 ange-ftp
with Tru64's FTP?  If so, did you fix it?

EmacsW32: GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2007-05-01 on
          LENNART-69DE564 (patched) & unpatched.
Tramp:    2.0.55
ftp:      Both gnuwin32 ftp.exe and C:\windows\system32\ftp.exe
ftpd:     FTP server (Digital UNIX Version 5.60)

Did you try the ftp.exe that comes with EmacsW32?

Someone reported a similar problem before. I do not remember if that was you.
