It's a Tramp feature. When it is in `tramp-completion-mode'
(`non-essential' is an indicator for it),

Like discussed in https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=23006#56, this doesn't make sense to me.

When the user presses C-M-i when typing a remote file name, they most likely want to be prompted password if the connection is not yet established. That is as opposed to "idle completion", as explained and discussed in https://github.com/company-mode/company-mode/issues/462

Based on that discussion, I though you'd improved that already somehow.

Tramp never opens a new
connection on its own. So it doesn't come to the point the remote end
asks for the password.

I'm not sure what "on its own" means here. In some file name completion contexts, Emacs does ask for a password, and in some (like here, where it's arguably a bug), doesn't.

The patch below makes Ido ask for password if I type TAB twice. But
not after I do that once, which is puzzling. But maybe the function
uses the completions already completed for the minibuffer, as a kind
of optimization.

Well, but it still doesn't comlete "/sudo:" and alike.

It does offer some completions there, but doesn't ask for password until I type the slash after the colon. Which differs from the default behavior, indeed.

I made a test with the emacs-25 branch; ido completion behaves
differently, when I use the Tramp libraries from the master branch
there. So looks like I must dig into Tramp for understanding the

Will do, but it might take time. I'm offline next days.

Thank you.
