There was an error in `locate-dominating-file', which did expand FILE
even if it wasn't a directory. Due to this, your tar file "foo.tar" was
expanded to "foo.tar/". I've fixed this, and I've also added some code
which shall prevent loading tramp-archive (and the whole Tramp then)
when it doesn't make sense.

Pushed to master.

Best regards, Michael.
