Ahh, that's a misunderstanding. I meant the Tramp method "sshx", like in
"/". It uses the "-t -t" ssh arguments as
in your "myssh" method, I believe this is the crucial point to pass your
remote login. Anyway, you're using "myssh" now, which is OK.

Let's analyze the traces at this point.

23:47:49.482582 tramp-send-command (6) # (cd ~/) 2>/dev/null; echo 
tramp_exit_status $?
23:47:49.489821 tramp-wait-for-regexp (6) #
tramp_exit_status 1

OK, your remote shell cannot expand "~/". This is what Tramp checks here.

`tramp-histfile-override' is declared as "~/.tramp_history". Tramp
recognizes that it cannot work because of the tilde, and errs out.

Please give that variable another value, either an absolute file name,
or set it to nil. Rerun your test, still using Tramp's method "myssh"
(or "sshx", just to see whether it works).

Best regards, Michael.
