There's no way to know that it is a remote file name. The second colon
is missing.

I bet, that typing "Find File: ~//ssh:address@hidden:" gives you
what you want.

This is more interesting. But I would need a reliable recipe to see the problem.

Ido greys out "~/" because of the double slash. It has nothing to do with
a remote file name. Again, there is no remote file name, only a string
which might be a remote file name when it is complete.

That seems to be an ido problem. With plain "M-x find-file" I cannot
reproduce it.

However, even if this grey out does not work as expected, I believe that
opening the file (after entering RET) still works as expected.
