This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.0.2195)
 of 2002-03-19 on buffy
configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: ENU

  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I'm using emacs in conjunction with the latest cygwin tools.  When I
M-x rlogin to our local Gnu/Linux system directory completion fails on
absolute paths.  That is, after logging in I can complete directories
local to my (remote) home directory, but absolute paths do not
complete.  Nor does it work to cd to / and complete.

I have a custom-set-variables sexp setting
'(rlogin-directory-tracking-mode t).  When I attempt directory
completion I get an error because comint is composing my local windows
directory with the remote directory.  A stack trace shows:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Opening directory" "no such file or 
directory" "/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/")
  signal(file-error ("Opening directory" "no such file or directory" 
"/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/"))
  ange-ftp-barf-if-not-directory("/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/")
  ange-ftp-file-name-completion("sour" 
"/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/")
  apply(ange-ftp-file-name-completion ("sour" 
"/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/"))
  ange-ftp-hook-function(file-name-completion "sour" 
"/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/")
  file-name-completion("sour" "/address@hidden:/home/mecklen/d:/usr/cygwin/")

  run-hook-with-args-until-success(comint-dynamic-complete-filename)
  comint-dynamic-complete()
  rlogin-tab-or-complete()
* call-interactively(rlogin-tab-or-complete)


It appears the problem is in comint-dynamic-complete-as-filename but
that's as far as I've gone.
