That's what I did.  Copyist! ;-)

Works perfect.

,----[ C-h v icomplete-with-completion-tables RET ]
| icomplete-with-completion-tables is a variable defined in `icomplete.el'.
| Its value is 
| (read-file-name-internal internal-complete-buffer)
| 
| Documentation:
| Specialized completion tables with which icomplete should operate.
| 
| Icomplete does not operate with any specialized completion tables
| except those on this list.
`----

But why does it complete functions and variables, too?  The last
paragraph seems to contradict this behavior.

Bye,
