I just installed tramp 2.1.6 and it works fine now.
By the way I noticed some drawback comparing to version 2.1.5. Hosts completion 
method does not work (at least for scp method).

Previous tramp successfully took hosts to complete from ~/.ssh/known_hosts.
I did not change configuration of my tramp. The only thing I changed is tramp 

tramp-version's value is "2.1.6"
(tramp-get-completion-function "scp"):
((tramp-parse-connection-properties "scp") (tramp-parse-shosts 
"~/.ssh/known_hosts") (tramp-parse-sconfig "~/.ssh/config"))

I will try to do some investigation later, unless You can guess what might be 
the reason.
