This is fixed in the master branch already:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
     ((fboundp 'start-file-process)
      (setq proc
            (let ((process-connection-type
                   (unless (eshell-needs-pipe-p command)
                  ;; `start-process' can't deal with relative filenames.
                  (command (file-local-name (expand-file-name command))))
              (apply 'start-file-process
                     (file-name-nondirectory command) nil command args)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

    Fix Bug#31704
    * lisp/eshell/esh-proc.el (eshell-gather-process-output): Do not
    let `expand-file-name' prefix remote file names with MS Windows
    volume letter.
    * lisp/net/tramp.el (tramp-eshell-directory-change):
    Use `path-separator' as it does eshell.  (Bug#31704)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

As you see, it requires two changes, in esh-proc.el and tramp.el.

What do you do, if COMMAND is another remote location than

And more general, there could also be file names in the PROGRAM-ARGS
part of start-file-process. Who decides, which of them is a remote file
name to be stripped to the local part, and which offers remote file name
syntax to be used literally?

That's why we have decided (long ago), to not allow remote arguments for
both start-file-process and process-file.
