This is actually trivial: a file that is not in C:/ is not considered
a remote file by Tramp handlers. Case closed.
Like Lennart, I think that considering X:/ files on Windows to be
remote is a bad idea. If it didn't have any serious consequences, I'd
just shrug. But the recent bug reports indicate that it does have
very serious consequences, and is quite an annoyance.
Can we please get rid of that misfeature?
