The INFO files explain the file name format depending on which
Emacs flavor has been used generating them. If XEmacs has been
used, the [ssh/address@hidden syntax will be shown, otherwise the
/ssh:address@hidden: syntax. See Makefile and tramp.texi in
.../tramp/texi/ (Use the source, Luke ;-)

So I guess you've used something like "EMACS=xemacs" applying make.

Or you have very old INFO files generated before this syntax change
has happened (half a year ago I guess). The method "sm" in your
example is an indication for that assumption. This method is outdated,
and it isn't mentioned in the Tramp 2.0.25 INFO pages, I hope.
