Slow TRAMP transfer with ssh

I'm not sure why, but when I try to edit an 89k file, using tramp there are issues.

I found several entries on the EmacsWiki TRAMP page talking about how version control gets in the way. But this file and directory had no source control. Then, I found this:

http://www.fifi.org/doc/tramp/tramp-emacs.html

It mentions that ssh actually uses a perl script to do its dirty work. My guess is that the perl script has a few issues. So instead, I used scp and it was more than a 1000 times faster. I have yet to see any disadvantage.

I also found this interesting article:

Haven't tried these.
