It's sloppy code from me.

It assumes that tramp-parse-passwd is called from
tramp-completion-handle-file-name-all-completions. Intention is to
provide "address@hidden" as default for su-alike user/host completion.

It's somewhere in a dusty part of my todo list making it clean (I know
the compiler warning). Maybe I should do it now, finally ...

Best regards, Michael.
