With recent versions of Emacs, tramp routinely hangs at the time of making the connection.
*Messages* buffer gives no information.
Is there a way to get more information as to what's happening?
I have seen this hanging behavior in two forms.
sudo-based connections, tramp hangs right after I enter the password for
sudo, and hit return.
ssh-based connections, tramp will hang right after the appearance of the message
Waiting from prompts from remote shell...
In either case, it would be helpful to know what tramp is doing all this time.
