bug#28761: tramp (2.3.2); be sure dired "*" commands work in tramp

Dear bug-gnu-emacs, in some cases when one thinks he is using a local
file in dired, it becomes a remote file. This might lead to him zapping
the wrong file.

I'm sorry, but what you describe is not a bug. Could you, pls, give a
scenario, starting with emacs -Q, which shows the problem?

Most of the Emacs developers don't read the Tramp devel mailing list, so
they would need this information. And as I told you already, you didn't
convince me (yet) that there's a Tramp bug.

Best regards, Michael.

OK I guess you are right. If we do
Dired file or URL: /ssh:remote_machine:
Then we are looking at a directory on the remote machine.
And all operations would refer to files on that remote machine. OK I'll
close this.
