Thanks.

But this still works. As soon as Tramp detects, that the file name is a
"syntactical complete" one, it lets you complete the remote file name
path. That means "/string:?" would be completed only in case "string" is
not a method name. "/string::?" or "/string:/?" or "/string:.?" will
always be completed with path names, because due to the syntax it is
clear that "string" must be a host name.

I have committed the changes; according to my tests it works fine.
