bug#11008: 24.0.94; ido-mode: Setting ido-completion-buffer to nil is br


From: Anmol Khirbat
Subject: bug#11008: 24.0.94; ido-mode: Setting ido-completion-buffer to nil is broken
Date: Tue, 13 Mar 2012 00:58:03 -0700

Hi,

According to the documentation, the variable ido-completion-buffer may
be set to nil to prevent completion buffers from popping up.  However,
if this variable is set to nil, it becomes impossible to switch buffers
or visit files.

Recipe:

1. emacs -Q

2. enable ido
(ido-mode t)
(setq ido-completion-buffer nil)

3. Try to switch buffers or visit a file
C-x b RET (or C-x C-f RET)
The error "Wrong type argument: stringp, nil" flashes in the minibuffer
and nothing happens.

I have included a patch to lisp/ido.el that should fix the problem by
preventing (get-buffer nil) from being called.

Regards,
Anmol
