I have combined 3. and 4. to 'eval-buffer'. I get the error

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Loading delsel...done
progn: Cannot open load file: No such file or directory, icomplete+
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I would know what to do, but that's too time consuming. I don't intend
to install further packages on my laptop. Please strip your .emacs to
the absolute minimum. Change also lines like

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(load-library "buffer-cycle.el")
(load-library "cycle-shell.el")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

to something which will work out-of-the-box, because the tmp directory,
where I have saved your files, does not belong to my load-path.

Ok, perhaps this will work better.  I'm attaching a gzipped tar file with three files, a slightly modified .emacs file, and the two custom el files.  Unpack it somewhere, and cd into the directory with the three files.

Then run the following command line:

    emacs -Q -l .emacs

When it finishes loading, follow the "good" test case by doing:

    C-x C-f /ssh:<userid>@<host>:<path>

After a few seconds, the file appears.

The "bad" test case is the "good" test case, with the following key sequence done first:

    C-x C-e

This will create and render a shell buffer.  Proceed with the rest of the "good" test case.  This will eventually time out.

Best regards, Michael.
