bug#5030: 23.1.50; Unexpected minibuffer tab completion behavior


From: Matthew Dempsky
Subject: bug#5030: 23.1.50; Unexpected minibuffer tab completion behavior
Date: Mon, 23 Nov 2009 22:09:21 -0800

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

On my computer, I have only two files in my home directory beginning
with the letter 'a': ~/aaa and ~/aab.  After starting Emacs with "Emacs
-Q" and pressing "C-x C-k C-a C-k ~ / <tab> <tab>", a new window appears
to display the *Completion* buffer with all of the files in my home
directory.  I expect this.

After additionally pressing "a <tab>", the minibuffer completes to
"~/aa", and the window that previously displayed the *Completion* buffer
now switches to displaying the *Messages* buffer instead.  I don't
expect this.

Instead, I expect either for that window to continue showing the
*Completion* buffer (refreshed to display just the "aaa" and "aab"
entries) or for that window to be deleted.  (I'd prefer the former
behavior.)

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
