Not really. Tramp needs to know several things of the remote host during
establishing the connection. In order to improve startup behaviour,
this information is kept in "~/.emacs.d/tramp". Next connection to the
host, Tramp reuses the information.

In your case, some items in that file were corrupt, due to the "-a"
argument of "ls". `tramp-cleanup-all-connections' clears that cache and
closes all open connections. So the information was gathered again, and
it is fine now.

You might read about it in the Tramp info via

  (info "(tramp)Connection caching")
