Can't reproduce it here.  I tried a few different cases but can't seem to
trigger the behavior you describe.  Looking at the code, the only place that
might look "suspicious" is the TAB expansion in the prompt, but even that
seems to work fine.

Can you try and give an even more precise recipe
starting from "emacs -Q ~/tmp/newfile.vhdl" ?
