Sometimes (I cannot reproduce it persistently), there are situations
that `expand-file-name' prefixes a remote file name by a volume
letter. Happens on win32 only, of course, and confuses Tramp.

In order to let Tramp continue its work, we have accepted remote file
names with a leading volume letter, which are removed by Tramp
then. This worked almost OK, except such cases as discussed in the
current (and earlier) bug reports.

Eli did suggest to remove this hack from Tramp, and to see during the
test where the unexpected volume letter prefix happens. Problems shall
be fixed there.

The following patch does it, in its final version there could be some
additional minor polishing.
