One issue that is outstanding is that some remote commands are
failing as the pathname is being handled as if it were local. These
include M-x grep and chmod (M in dired).  I've tested with a plain
plink on xemacs -q.

I still have these problems with some remote operations on tramp 2.1.18,
XEmacs 21.5b29, native on XP SP3.

The remote operations all work on tramp 2.1.16, with the patch for
tramp-handle-dired-uncache.  That version is okay for my usage but it
would be good to fix 2.1.17/18.  Any more hints for where to look?
There were many changes from .16 to .17.
