Please do so. If you know more, you might raise a bug report via

OK. I'll extend the regexp matching your case.

I cannot reproduce it here. Tramp uses the expression
(or user (user-login-name)) for sending the login name; I have no
idea why (and how) it should shorten it. What happens when you write
your user name in the file name, like "/ssh:address@hidden:/path"?
