Well, I remember. The format of the `tramp-persistency-file-name' has
changed between Tramp 2.2 (part of Emacs 25) and 2.3 (part of Emacs
26). This explains the error, and that you couldn't reproduce it later.

Yes, you could do this. Or set `tramp-persistency-file-name' to nil.

It keeps some cached data for Tramp.

Faster startup.

No, it's not related.

In your case, when you switch between Tramp versions.

Sure, the file keeps separate data for every single connection.
