Tramp is intented to do this. If it doesn't, any support reaching this
goal is very appreciated.

For the time being, Tramp _IS_ very slow in initialization. There are
some ideas on the todo list for improvement, but that's not so
simple. After initialization, it should work with sufficient
performance (although slower than ange-ftp).

You mention an important fact: It did work with August Emacs 21.3.50,
and it didn't with December Emacs 21.3.50. When you switched to the
latter one, did you upgrade something else in parallel? Windows XP
SP2, Cygwin, whatever? If not, we could concentrate on Emacs and its
builtin Tramp.

Best regards, Michael.
