I believe I understand what happens when the "Recursive load" message
for Tramp appears. We have the following situation:

- Tramp is not loaded yet.
- default-directory is set to "/su::".
- shell-command is called.

The Tramp handler of shell-command must be applied. Therefore, due to
the autoload definitions, Tramp must be loaded. Loading tramp.el
itself causes new remote file operations (due to default-directory).
And so on.

The solution would be to set temporarily default-directory to "/" or
whatover local during loading of Tramp. But I have no idea how to say
it, I don't know of any before-load-hook where I could apply such a
setting. Does anybody has an idea how to do this?

For your patch, it would work with the small change that you arrange
the loading of Tramp yourself (a working version of the patch is
appended). But I don't like this solution too much, I'ld prefer that
Tramp could handle it itself.
