But that's exactly what the traces show. I don't want to bore you with
all the details, but in tramp-file-name-handler there is a special
handling when the operation in question is expand-file-name und you
are in the completion mode (meaning you have hit TAB). It expands
wrongly "/plink:governator:/" to "c:/plink:governator:/", with several
undesired consequences ...

I will see whether I can find a solution for this. On the other hand,
in Tramp 2.1 seem to be fixes for this problem. Given, that the code
basis between Tramp 2.0 and 2.1 is fairly different, and given that
Tramp 2.1 is now in the Emacs CVS trunk, it might be more efficient to
concentrate on Tramp 2.1.

Thanks for your patient testing, and best regards, Michael.
