That means that they were correctly restored as the current set of completion

Anything? What you type needs to match at least one of the candidates, or it
will say "No match".

`*' matches only names that contain the character `*'. Perhaps that's your

Empty input matches everything, and if you use apropos completion (`S-TAB') `.*'
matches everything. 

For apropos completion, the regexp `*' matches only names that contain `*'. For
prefix completion (`TAB'), `*' matches only names that start with `*'. 

You can of course use just `*' with `RET' to get normal Emacs file-name globbing
(`*' matches all file names in this context), but for completion `*' is a regexp
that matches `*'.

When you send the complete bug report, please give an exact recipe, step by
step, starting with emacs -Q.
