Yes, I could reproduce it. The problem is, that flymake starts an
asynchronous process. It's sentinel calls then flymake-simple-cleanup,
which fires file-exists-p to an unpredictable time.

After serving flymake-find-file-hook, find-file has continued with the
other functions in find-file-hook. When the file-exists-p call from the
sentinel happened, Tramp was busy with requests from
vc-find-file-hook. And since Tramp is designed to work sequentially, it
couldn't serve promptly :-(

As temporary workaround, you could try

(add-hook 'find-file-hook 'flymake-find-file-hook 'append)

I will check, whether Tramp could be enabled to handle such asynchronous
calls.
