My crystal ball says that your 24.3.50 snapshot was bootstrapped on
MS-Windows, or at least Tramp was compiled on Windows.  See below.

That's not the same, because the call to tramp-drop-volume-letter in
tramp-sh-handle-expand-file-name could still be expanded to 'identity'
(= nothing) by the byte compiler when tramp-sh.elc was compiled.  And
indeed, disassembling tramp-sh-handle-expand-file-name from
tramp-sh.elc provided in the Emacs 24.3 tarball shows this:

  336   varbind   default-directory
  337   varbind   directory-sep-char
  339   constant  tramp-make-tramp-file-name
  340   varref    method
  341   varref    user
  342   varref    host
  344   constant  tramp-run-real-handler
  345   constant  expand-file-name
  346   varref    localname
  348   list1     
  349   call      2
  350   varref    hop
  352   call      5
  353   unbind    8
  355   return    

"Look, ma: no tramp-drop-volume-letter!"

If I now byte-compile tramp-sh.el on MS-Windows, I get this
disassembly:

  336   varbind   default-directory
  337   varbind   directory-sep-char
  339   constant  tramp-make-tramp-file-name
  340   varref    method
  341   varref    user
  342   varref    host
  344   constant  tramp-drop-volume-letter  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
  345   constant  tramp-run-real-handler
  346   constant  expand-file-name
  347   varref    localname
  349   list1     
  350   call      2
  351   call      1
  352   varref    hop
  354   call      5
  355   unbind    8
  357   return    

(And, btw, the .elc file I get is 50KB smaller than the one in the
tarball -- why?)

If I compile tramp-sh.el on GNU/Linux with the latest trunk, I still
don't see tramp-drop-volume-letter in the disassembly of
tramp-sh-handle-expand-file-name.  So the problem is still there in
the current trunk.  By contrast, if I compile tramp-sh.el with Emacs
24.2, I do see the call to tramp-drop-volume-letter in the
disassembly.

So, somehow, compiling tramp-sh.el on Unix replaces the call to
tramp-drop-volume-letter with nothing.  Perhaps the condition, viz.

  (defalias 'tramp-drop-volume-letter
    (if (memq system-type '(cygwin windows-nt))  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
        (lambda (name)
          "Cut off unnecessary drive letter from file NAME.
  The functions `tramp-*-handle-expand-file-name' call `expand-file-name'
  locally on a remote file name.  When the local system is a W32 system
  but the remote system is Unix, this introduces a superfluous drive
  letter into the file name.  This function removes it."
          (save-match-data
            (if (string-match "\\`[a-zA-Z]:/" name)
                (replace-match "/" nil t name)
              name)))

      'identity))

is expanded at byte-compile time, instead of at run time?

And I guess whatever has this effect was introduced between the
release of 24.2 and 24.3 (which was the trunk until 24.2 release).
