GNU Emacs 21.2: Yes, same here.

But: C-h v completion-ignored-extensions RET also says:

| Documentation:
| *Completion ignores filenames ending in any string in this list.
| This variable does not affect lists of possible completions,
| but does affect the commands that actually do completions.

hmm, maybe I'm a bit dense, but I do not fully understand...
Any way it *does not* affect the presented list of completions like 
the documentation says...
