That is why I have in .emacs:

(delete-from-list 'completion-ignored-extensions ".pdf")
(delete-from-list 'completion-ignored-extensions ".dvi")
(delete-from-list 'completion-ignored-extensions ".log")

OK, .log was recently removed from completion-ignored-extensions in
Emacs CVS.  Perhaps, .pdf and .dvi should be removed too, because
these extensions are quite interesting for users.  But more
importantly that they would be removed from dired-omit-extensions
which is constructed from the completion-ignored-extensions list.
