Hmm. I've grepped now for both substitute-in-file-name and
file-name-handler-alist in order to get better candidates. ffap.el
seems to be a problem.

Touched a file '\$abc' in my home directory. Started "emacs-21.3 -q
--no-init-file -f ffap-bindings" (no Tramp, or so). Loaded home
directory in dired, point at file '$abc.el'. After "C-x C-f <TAB>" I
get the error message

    ffap-read-file-or-url-internal: Substituting nonexistent environment 
variable "abc"
