Of course I have tried that, but I could not find the problem. I
needed to do certain things after to make it happens.

Now I think I have found the problem. In ido-minibuffer-setup (in
ido.el) there is a line

    (setq cua-inhibit-cua-keys t)

I have had that commented out for long in my patched version of Emacs,
but forgot to tell about it. Some merging breaked this.

I see no reason why it should be there. Could it please be removed (or
commented out) if no one else sees a reason for it? (Then we have to
find another way to solve this bug.)
