    Force completion in icomplete with C-M-i, but don't cycle

    Cycling after forcing a completion with C-M-i in icomplete can be
    confusing, as it leaves rotated prospects in the minibuffer.  In
    C-f, for example it is very difficult to understand if the
    refer to subdirectories of the directory being completed to, which
    happens naturally when the completion is unique; or if they are a
    cycled version of prospects that match the new completion pattern,
    case the completion happens to still match other items.

    To resolve this confusion, never cycle with C-M-i in icomplete:
    non-ambiguous cycling can be achieved with C-. and C-,

    The former behaviour can still be restored with:

    (define-key icomplete-minibuffer-map (kbd "C-M-i")

    * lisp/icomplete.el (icomplete-force-complete): New command.
    (icomplete-minibuffer-map): Bind C-M-i to

    Avoid cycling in minibuffer-force-complete-and-exit (bug#34116)

    * lisp/minibuffer.el (minibuffer-force-complete-and-exit): Check
    completion-cycling before minibuffer-force-complete.
