No, `file-exists-p' recognize tramp file name and return t.

(file-exists-p "/su:address@hidden:/usr/local/bin/editeur.sh")
==>t

The problem is, i think, vc call `file-exists-p' with (vc-name fname) as
argument instead of "file_name":

,----[ With a tramp filename return error ]
| (file-exists-p (vc-name "/su:address@hidden:/usr/local/bin/editeur.sh"))
| ==>
| Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp nil)
|   file-exists-p(nil)
|   eval((file-exists-p (vc-name 
"/su:address@hidden:/usr/local/bin/editeur.sh")))
|   eval-expression((file-exists-p (vc-name 
"/su:address@hidden:/usr/local/bin/editeur.sh")) nil)
|   call-interactively(eval-expression nil nil)
`----

,----[ With a regular filename return t ]
| (file-exists-p (vc-name "~/bin/call-gnus.sh"))
| ==>t
`----

So it seem the problem come from vc that try to set properties on
filename with `vc-name' and fail on tramp filename.
(`vc-name' call `vc-file-getprop')

Thought i didn't look at the code carefully, so i am may be wrong.
