Yes, it is 2.1.9.

My login shell is bash. Without this, I do not get past the opening
connection prompt.

I am working on this. Given that Emacs is locking up, I need to 
find something for tramp to do so I can have the buffer up in anticipation 
of the freeze. See more bellow though.

On OSX, Make failed, but ./configure only had warnings. After running 
configure, the warning and problem went away. Now I can get through, 
including directory listings, provided I used authorized_keys. I have 
different passwords on the two hops and cannot get to the second hop 
using passwords. Looking through the long debug output, I see that after 
the successful first hop there appears to be a process that is repeated 
ten times. Here is the line I was watching for to count 10:

16:10:00 tramp-accept-process-output (10) # *tramp/ssh address@hidden run

This was followed variously by blanks or the prompt from the first hop on the 
next line, but the last two were apparently the standard 

Permission denied (publickey,keyboard-interactive).^M

I can send details here or off list if this is useful. 

Thank you for your patient help. Seeing a successful multi-hop
connection helps me a lot on working out the problems in Windows, 
which remain and which I will return to after a break.
