bug#7583: 23.2; ido loads tramp too eagerly

I don't understand.  Please be specific:
1- does it try to start a Tramp session?
2- do you want it to try to start a Tramp session?
3- where does it try to connect?

>From what I understand you're saying that (1) is true, and that (2) is
false, whereas in my experience (1) is false.
Also I don't know what it means for Tramp to "try to connect to nowhere".

>>> we expect tramp to connect only when we have:
>>> /sudo:: and not before (i.e before entering the second ":").
>> When I do C-x C-f /ssh: TAB Tramp does not try to connect to anything,

"vanilla Emacs completion" uses try-completion, so you must thinking of
some other "elsewhere".  What is that other "elsewhere"?

>>> But I have no problem here with my code (anything),

Are you saying that the problem you reported only affects older Emacsen
and has been fixed in the trunk?
