So I've just did this in the current emacs-25 branch:
M-x ido-mode RET
C-x C-f /plinkx:eliz@
and sure enough, I get the same error as the OP (except in my case the
drive letter is 'd:').
Looks like ido.el assumes something about file-name-all-completions
that isn't happening on MS-Windows. What do you get when you invoke
(file-name-all-completions "" "/plinkx:eliz@")
? Or does ido.el never invoke this in ido-file-name-all-completions-1
Let me know what other information I can provide.
