Using a Redhat enterprise Virtual Machine as my testbed.

Can't set TERM to dumb, as plink is not considered a dumb terminal.
Thus, can't create a simple prompt string based on TERM.

Instead, I changed, using Customize -> Files -> Tramp, "Tramp Shell
Prompt Pattern" to (excluding quotes)

[#$%>]+ *$

Basically, looking for # or $ or % or > followed by zero or more
spaces followed by end of search buffer.

Works fine.

I have no idea why the prompt pattern is so complicated, by default.
The above pattern, quite nicely, skips over echoed commands, bypasses /
etc/issues (unless the banner is boxed in # symbols)

>From the initial C-F /thehost~/ RET
to displaying my home directory, takes 7 seconds.

And, I still have my fancy prompt string which includes escape
sequences to update the terminal window title, which works with both
PuTTY and xterm.
