bug#14907: 24.3.50; Too few completions shown when case ignored

-1. cd /tmp; touch a A
0. emacs -Q
1. M-x set-variable RET read-file-name-completion-ignore-case RET t RET
2. C-x C-f a TAB => [Complete, but not unique]
3. TAB => *Completions* buffer shows only file `a'.

Likewise, if at step 2 you type C-c C-f A TAB, then after the TAB in
step 3, *Completions* shows only file `A'.

If I debugged this correctly, the problem is due to completion--twq-all
not distinguishing between prefix strings for completions that differ
only in case.  The following patch fixes this problem for me (I tried to
reuse the relevant part of the requoting code, but haven't tested such
