IIRC, there was the case that "/method:host:" was expanded to
"C:/method:host:" by I-dont-know-which-package. Exactly because of this
problem we have the `tramp-drop-volume-letter' function.

I acknowledge, that it is an error which shall be fixed where it
happens, and not in Tramp. But not easy to hunt, especially for a guy
like me who doesn't work under w32.

Best regards, Michael.
