Re: Reverting *Locate* buffers.

While on the error message regarding tramp, I've found that tramp
being around causes *a lot* of recursive expand file calls ---
try running edebug on anything that calls expand-file-name to see
what I mean.

Basically, tramp should only fire on the  "head" of the path
being expanded -- at present it appears to fire for *each* path
