It's a bug in TRAMP: 

If I create a new file: "/su:address@hidden:/tmp/blah"
then to C-x v v to register it, it fails.  But I can see that the 
/tmp/RCS/blah,v is created.  If after that I do:

M-: (file-exists-p "/su:address@hidden:/tmp/RCS/blah,v") RET
the result is nil.

If I start a new emacs and do:
M-: (file-exists-p "/su:address@hidden:/tmp/RCS/blah,v") RET
the result is t.
