Maybe we can discuss it in another thread.

Thanks for reminding me! We have had the same problem in ido.el (and
icycles.el, IIRC), and I have introduced `tramp-completion-mode' exactly

The appended patch shall fix it; Thierry, could you, please, test? You
need a `make bootstrap', because minibuffer.el is dumped into the binary.
