When I retried this, I get somewhat different diagnostics, but still the
same basic problem.

Tramp buffer:
( tramp_encode </dev/null 2>/dev/null; echo tramp_exit_status $? )
tramp_encode: not found
tramp_exit_status 1

Trace buffer:
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Couldn't find an inline transfer 
  signal(error ("Couldn't find an inline transfer encoding"))
  error("Couldn't find an inline transfer encoding")
  tramp-find-inline-encoding(nil nil "wbp" "maple")
  tramp-post-connection(nil nil "wbp" "maple")
  tramp-open-connection-rsh(nil nil "wbp" "maple")
  tramp-maybe-open-connection(nil nil "wbp" "maple")
  tramp-send-command(nil nil "wbp" "maple" "cd ~; pwd" t)
  tramp-handle-expand-file-name("/address@hidden:.emacs" nil)
  apply(tramp-handle-expand-file-name ("/address@hidden:.emacs" nil))
  tramp-sh-file-name-handler(expand-file-name "/address@hidden:.emacs" nil)
  apply(tramp-sh-file-name-handler expand-file-name ("/address@hidden:.emacs" 
  tramp-file-name-handler(expand-file-name "/address@hidden:.emacs" nil)
  find-file-noselect("/address@hidden:.emacs" nil nil t)
  find-file("/address@hidden:.emacs" t)


The value of tramp-coding-commands is:

(("mimencode -b" "mimencode -u -b" base64-encode-region base64-decode-region)
 ("mmencode -b" "mmencode -u -b" base64-encode-region base64-decode-region)
 ("recode data..base64" "recode" base64-encode-region 
 ("uuencode xxx" "uudecode -o /dev/stdout" tramp-uuencode-region 
 ("uuencode xxx" "uudecode -o -" tramp-uuencode-region uudecode-decode-region)
 ("uuencode xxx" "uudecode -p" tramp-uuencode-region uudecode-decode-region)
 ("uuencode xxx" "tramp_uudecode" tramp-uuencode-region uudecode-decode-region)
 ("tramp_encode_with_module" "tramp_decode_with_module" base64-encode-region 
 ("tramp_encode" "tramp_decode" base64-encode-region base64-decode-region))

But I don't know what to do with this information to get tramp to work.
