What do you type exactly? "C-x C-f /address@hidden: <TAB>"?

Which ssh program is used then?

However, I cannot reproduce it here. Starting

 "C:\Program Files\emacs-22.1\bin\runemacs.exe" -Q

I can type "C-x C-f /plink:address@hidden: <TAB>", and I get "[No match]"
(I have no plain ssh). Not exciting, but at least it doesn't hang. The
same happens, when I have evaluated `(setq partial-completion-mode t)'

Could you, please, run this test (starting "emacs -Q")?
