Yes, it should.

What is the value of `tramp-completion-function-alist'? What does the
following form returns?

  (tramp-get-completion-function "plink")

Does it help to call

   '((tramp-parse-shosts "~/.ssh/known_hosts")))

Is there a difference in methods "plink" and "plinkx" (you seem to use
both methods)?

As usual, I'm not able to test on w32 systems on my own, without
stealing a machine somewhere.

Best regards, Michael.
