No Emacs Lisp load-path shadowings were found

ah, that one looks different:
Library is file d:/home/thaselberger/emacs/cvs/tramp/lisp/tramp.elc OK
file-name-handler-alist's value is 
(("\\`/[^/:]+:" . tramp-file-name-handler)
 ("\\`/:" . file-name-non-special))

I use the standard emacs distro for winnt, in loaddefs.el I found these lines:
(or (assoc "^/[^/:]*[^/:.]:" file-name-handler-alist) (setq 
file-name-handler-alist (cons (quote ("^/[^/:]*[^/:.]:" . 
ange-ftp-hook-function)) file-name-handler-alist)))

(or (assoc "^/[^/:]*\\'" file-name-handler-alist) (setq file-name-handler-alist 
(cons (quote ("^/[^/:]*\\'" . ange-ftp-completion-hook-function)) 

I tried uncommenting these lines, that didn't change anything.

Is there a way to get rid of this behaviour without building emacs myself - I'm 
not used doing that on a win platform.

thanks for your advice,
