The variable is process-connection-type.  Setting it to t makes Tramp
work, I believe, but could cause problems elsewhere.  You could try it
our for yourself -- if something else breaks then you know where to
look.

It may work to use the sshx method instead of ssh.  (Of course, that
is not an option with sudo.  Hm.  In principle, sudo could be changed
in a similar way.)

It may also work to use a method similar to sshx which invokes "bash
-i" instead of /bin/sh.
