That is Tramp 2.0 style.

That is Tramp 2.1.

Which Tramp version are you using? I thought 2.1.9?

I don't know whether it is a good idea to set bash. Why do you need it?

That's good. In the debug buffer, you might see what Tramp is
doing. Al the chatting with the remote host. Did you check it?
Otherwise, you could send the debug buffer for more investigations.

I have the strong feeling that you have installed Tramp without
calling ./configure ...

Same as above. ./configure is a must.

Yes, gateway methods work (as of today) only with Emacs 22.1. I didn't
hide the respective variables properly, fixed in CVS meanwhile. But
this is hopefully a warning only?

Best regards, Michael.
