Hi,

I am using emacs 20.7.2, as included by Slackware 8.0
and the Tramp version from 2001-10-08. The remote
machine is a Linux-box running a 2.2.17 kernel and
OpenSSH_2.5.2p2.

When I connect to a remote machine using ssh,
everything seems to work just fine up to the moment I
actually want to load the file. I include a snippet
from emacs' messages buffer.

The following happens when I request the file:
/[g]/home/src/se/docb and hit tab for filename
completion.

So far so good, tramp suggests the right
filename-completion, namely docbuffer.c

However, when I hit enter tramp says:

No files match `/[scp/g]/home/src/se/docbuffer.c

Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

Cheers,
Frank
