LOL!  That's supposed to be a feature ;-)  No, really...

What is you see is widget completion in action: for the height scale 
button, it calls complete-symbol, while for the font family, it invokes 
ispell-complete-word.  Of course, the former will not work without a TAGS 
table, while the latter has only small chances to complete font family 
names such as "dingbats", but evidently that's how those widgets were 

I guess it would be much better to use lisp-complete-symbol instead of 
complete-symbol, and replace ispell-complete-word with something that 
completes only on font families of installed fonts.
