Now I start to understand what happens. In tramp--test-check-files,
there is a loop over the test strings, which are used for different test
purposes. At the very end, an environment variable is set as

                  (setenv envvar elt)

When the failing regexp search is applied, the original string is not
taken, but the set environment variable

                       (regexp-quote envvar)
                       (regexp-quote (getenv envvar))))))))))

Likely, (getenv envvar) returns the encoded string, which fails. Using
the original string shall work.

No, you're very helpful as usual! Thanks!

Stefan, does the following patch solves the problem for you?

diff --git a/test/lisp/net/tramp-tests.el b/test/lisp/net/tramp-tests.el

        ;; Cleanup.
        (ignore-errors (delete-directory tmp-name1 'recursive))
Best regards, Michael.
