Nope, I actually never used gnudoit at all.  Should I?  What I tried
were variants of:

kogs2>/home/utcke% echo $EDITOR 
gnuclient -h kogs31.informatik.uni-hamburg.de -r/r:kogs2:

(which clearly show that I am using an outdated version of tramp :-)

Quite possibly.  I'm using ssh to tunnel the X-display --- but how do
I tell Emacs about this?  Hmm...  There is no option --display  which
I could give to gnuclient...

Still baffled
