I think this is a tramp version number issue, not a difference between
xemacs and emacs. 

The sourceforge page
(http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=34545) seems to be
painfully out of date. The latest file release is 2002-04-11. These versions
contain a tramp-make-tramp-file-name that has 5 arguments. I'm guessing that
it is a version closer to this that you have (presumably preinstalled with
gnuemacs). I had gotten the latest version because I was having problems
with the version that came preinstalled on xemacs. 

The project's homepage appears to now be at
With the most recent version released on 2005-12-11

Looking back through the cvs commits, it looks like here is when that
This is a rather large change that removed multi-hop methods and added
proxies. Dated Mon Jul 26 19:36:34 2004 UTC  Other checking comments lead me
to believe that this changed as it went to tramp 2.0.

I don't know how you want to deal with this. The change was long enough ago
that there are probably many people like me who have a more recent version,
as well as many people for whom the preinstalled version has been working
just fine.

my version of tramp-make-tramp-file-name (emacs takes 5
arguments, not 4 as in slime-create-filename-translator. is this a bug
or does this function have a differenet api on other emacs?

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget the perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
