Thanks for the feedback.

There's no mock method on Windows, indeed. But you could use a real
target for testing. Prior starting Emacs, apply this command:

> set REMOTE_TEMPORARY_FILE_DIRECTORY=/plink:address@hidden:/tmp

user and host shall be replaced by respective values. See also the
Cmommentary section of tramp-tests.el.

You might have seen the discussion for this patch on the emacs-devel
ML. In the emacs-25 branch, only the patch for tramp.el has landed
(which is the more important part); the patch for files.el didn't arrive
there. Therefore, the test case `tramp-test31-make-auto-save-file-name'
will fail, likely. In the master branch, all tests shall pass.

Best regards, Michael.
