Indeed. But you don't know, which other primitive functions are called,
requesting a url-* handler. And you don't know, whether
url-file-name-directory will be added to url-handlers.el in the future.

At least I don't know. If there shall be another fix than disabling
Tramp temporarily, I would like to give it to somebody else with much
more knowledge about the url package than I have.
