The appended patch shows how autocompletion could work for remote file
names. It removes the drive letter from file names to be completed,
because this prevents activation of Tramp file name handlers for
file-name-all-completions in read-file-name-internal.

But the disadvantage is, that file name completion fails if you are on
another drive than the one Emacs is installed. Assume that Emacs is
located at "C:/Program Files/Emacs". Your default directory be
"U:/". When you type "C-x f /p <TAB>", you get offered "/plink:" and
"/Program Files/". The second offer is wrong.

Best regards, Michael.
