bug#11755: 24.1.50; regression: invalid function - file name completion

Subject: bug#11755: 24.1.50; regression: invalid function - file name completion

I traced this in the debugger in Emacs 24.1, where there is no problem,
and in this build.  
 
The starting point to see the difference is this:
 
(try-completion "c:/foo" 'read-file-name-internal "c:/foobar/")
 
In both versions that leads to:
 
(read-file-name-internal "c:/foo" "c:/foobar/" nil)
 
which leads eventually to this difference:
 
Emacs 24.1:
(file-name-completion "foo" "c:/" nil) ; returns "c:/foobar/"
 
Emacs 24.1.50, 2012-06-18:
(file-name-completion "foo" "c:/" "c:/foobar/") ; signals an error
 
Evaluating that sexp leads to this invalid evaluation (this is the
debugger line), which tries to apply the directory string as if it
were a function:
 
* "c:/foobar/"("foobar/")
 
This breaks, for example, Icicles highlighting of the mismatched portion
of minibuffer input.  For that, I proceed via bifurcation to match larger
prefixes of the input string until I find where the mismatch first
starts (leftmost mismatch position).
 
The test now fails (I do it in a condition-case that returns nil for an
error) for even a slight prefix such as c:/foo, so _all_ of the input is
always highlighted (for file-name completion).
