I could reproduce the problem with Tramp 2.3.2.
Using the recent Tramp 2.3.3-pre from the repository, the problem has
been solved. So either download this one, or wait until it has been
released (end of the year, I guess).

Could behave better, yes. But handling file name completion in the
minibuffer is out of the scope of Tramp. Tramp is just a library, which
replaces some basic file operations with own ones for remote targets, as
tramp-adb.el does for Android devices.
If you want to have a different file name completion in the minibuffer,
you must either extend existing packages (like ido.el, icomplete.el, or
alike), or you must write your own file name completion. See the Elisp

Of course. As said above, it is the version "from the repository". You
could retrieve it via git.
