bug#22844: 24.4; ido confused by leading ~ in dir names

Because I use wget -x, I have directories like this:

If I open dired in ~/Desktop, I can browse to that just fine.

If I use C-x C-f (ido-find-file) from ~/Desktop/www.cl.cam.ac.uk/,
I can press ^M and got into ~rja14 just fine:

   Find file: ~/Desktop/www.cl.cam.ac.uk/{~rja14/ | ~sjm217/}
^M  Find file: ~/Desktop/www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/{Papers/ | book/ | book.html}

But if I try to navigate via C-x C-f from somewhere else (like ~/Desktop), ido 
goes haywire:

   Find file: ~/Desktop/{www.cl.cam.ac.uk/ | ...
^M  Find file: ~/Desktop/www.cl.cam.ac.uk/{~rja14/ | ~sjm217/}
^M  Find file: ~/Desktop/~rja14/ [No match]

If this is easy to fix, please fix it.

If it involves a bunch of tradeoffs, don't worry about it- it doesn't
affect me often & dired is a "good enough" workaround.
(This issue has been present for years,
I only just got annoyed enough to report it.)

The ido settings in my .emacs are:

   (setq ido-default-buffer-method 'selected-window
         ido-default-file-method 'selected-window
         ido-enable-prefix t
         ido-enable-flex-matching t
         ido-save-directory-list-file "~/.emacs.d/ido.last"
         ido-use-filename-at-point 'guess
         ido-use-url-at-point t)
   (ido-mode +1)
   (ido-everywhere +1)
   (eval-after-load "ido"
     '(eval-after-load "dired"
        '(put 'ido-subdir 'face-alias 'dired-directory)))
