Ok, that also worked.  I guess that means there's something in my .emacs or loaded packages that is conflicting with this?

I guess I can attach my .emacs file, which has been evolving literally over decades without my really knowing what I'm doing. I also went into "Manage Packages", copied the text out of that list, and flushed all the "available" lines, leaving the ones that are installed or dependencies.

Yep, the traces look fine.

Then try this interactively. Call "emacs -Q", and then in Emacs "C-x C-f
/ssh:<myuserid>@<hostname>:~/.bash_profile". Does this work?

Best regards, Michael.
