IMHO we should fix this bug for most use cases with a compare function
maybe not perfect in many points but ok for most basic usages.
The function shown by Drew and I put in last patch as you said isn't
sufficient and fail in many cases even on local filesystem:

(defun bmkp-same-file-p (file1 file2)
  "Return non-nil if FILE1 and FILE2 name the same file.
If either name is not absolute, then it is expanded relative to
`default-directory' for the test."
  (and (equal (file-remote-p file1) (file-remote-p file2))
       (string= (file-truename (expand-file-name file1))
                (file-truename (expand-file-name file2)))))

(bmkp-same-file-p "~/Test" "/home/thierry/Test/") => nil

That would be for Emacs24.1, and we could work on the real thing in
tramp for 24.2

Here is my last work on this based on precedent example i sent and your
last advices; it doesn't cover many use cases as you point before, test
user, method etc... but works for all the use cases below:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun file-equal-p (name1 name2)
  (if (or (file-remote-p name1)
          (file-remote-p name2))
      (let* ((n1     (file-name-as-directory
                      (expand-file-name name1)))
             (n2     (file-name-as-directory
                      (expand-file-name name2)))
             (rhost1 (file-remote-p n1 'host))
             (rhost2 (file-remote-p n2 'host))
             (lname1 (file-remote-p n1 'localname))
             (lname2 (file-remote-p n2 'localname))
             rem-n1 rem-n2)
        (cond ((and rhost1 (not rhost2))
               (setq rem-n1 (list (cons rhost1 (file-truename lname1))))
               (setq rem-n2 (list (cons (system-name) (file-truename n2)))))
              ((and (not rhost1) rhost2)
               (setq rem-n1 (list (cons (system-name) (file-truename n1))))
               (setq rem-n2 (list (cons rhost2 (file-truename lname2)))))
              ((and rhost1 rhost2)
               (setq rem-n1 (list (cons rhost1 (file-truename lname1))))
               (setq rem-n2 (list (cons rhost2 (file-truename lname2))))))
        (loop for (x1 . y1) in rem-n1
              for (x2 . y2) in rem-n2
              always (and (equal x1 x2)
                          (equal y1 y2))))
      (string= (file-name-as-directory
                (file-truename (expand-file-name name1)))
                (file-truename (expand-file-name name2))))))
