`shell-command-to-string' uses internally `call-process', which does not
support processes on remote hosts. Replacing this call by `process-file'
seems to DTRT. You might write a bug report.

I do not know, whether it is always intended to run `shell-command-to-string'
on the remote host. Must be checked, before it is changed.
