Right, it's probably eval of funcall.

Oh, you mean that the error could come from the fact that `md' goes with
`candidates', so some code might assume that the completion table is
a function based on the `md' data, whereas we passed `comps' which is
a list of strings?

Hmm... that sounds plausible.

Apply the patch below.  That should replace your error message with
a different one, so if the error message stays the same, the problem
is elsewhere.  And if a new message appears we've found a culprit.
Of course, minibuffer.el is preloaded, so you'll want to re-dump your
Emacs, force reloading minibuffer.el(c) from your .emacs, or do some
other dance to make sure you use the new definition of
