I'll do vc operations on remote hosts on a daily basis, no problem. I've
just rechecked my init files, there's nothing for a special vc

vc-ignore-dir-regexp with its default settings does not seem to disturb

How do you access your remote machine? Which Tramp method do you use?
Which vc backend do you use? Personally, I access the remote machine via
Tramp's ssh/scp methods, using git. I believe, bzr and cvs ought to work
also, but that's years ago.

What does (vc-registered "<remote file path>") tells you? Pls run it
when you have set tramp-verbose to 6 in advance; I would like to see
which Tramp commands were sent.

Is it possible for you to use vc operations on local files, prefixed
with "/ssh::"?
