Hi Tino.

I should used 'executable-find' for a local connection.  For a
tramp connection i don't know how to get the 'sh' location in the
remote host: i just kept '/bin/sh' for them.

"/bin/sh" is OK. The feature works anyway only for methods defined in

Alternatively, one could take the value of `explicit-shell-file-name',
which is prepared for connection-local variables. But I doubt, that many
people use it this way already.
Thank you.  I pushed in e82c4f56e6
(Don't assume /bin/sh as the 'sh' location in the local host)
a fix: in the local connection check first for a non-nil
value of explicit-shell-file-name to exists; otherwise it
uses (executable-find "sh").
