There are no "failed completions" Tramp could detect today. It simply
uses its cache, and it believes that is OK.

My typical usage is to enter a letter or two and then a completion key.
So I do see a failed completion, there is no match in the cache.

Another case to consider is where a match is found in the cache, but
not the desired file.  Then the sequence would be something like <TAB>
<TAB> [refresh] <UNDO>.

Flushing the cache after hitting a completion key (like <TAB>) several
times is a good approach.

Yes, it quite natural to repeat an operation that has not met
expectations, though usually futile.
