You're completely right. The simpler solution is to not allow one
letter hostnames on MS Windows. 

Maybe with the following :

Attachment: ido.patch
Description: Text Data

But it's probably better to do that : if the file actually exists (c:
should exist, I suppose), then use it. Otherwise, use tramp.

I can propose the following :

Attachment: ido-2.patch
Description: Text Data

but I really don't know if it works on Windows.

BTW, something tickles me about all that: why functions like
file-exists-p & co doesn't check if the file is not an actual
stat(2)-able file before getting any fanciness with file name
handlers ?
