Sorry for the late answer; as usual it takes time until I find a w32

I have installed "GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of
2008-05-15 on LENNART-69DE564". Nothing else, so it is the built-in
Tramp 2.1.14-pre. My .emacs is empty (yes, it is not *my* machine).
No site specific files for Emacs, AFAICS.

Then I open a connection to a RHEL5 machine via "C-x C-f
/plink:address@hidden: <RET>". Being there,
there is no problem in completing filenames with "C-x C-f abc <TAB>".

Could you, please, check it without any own settings, i.e. starting
"emacs -Q"?

Best regards, Michael.
