This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2002-03-22 on ws-rh006.franklin.com
configured using `configure  --exec-prefix=/vol/emacs/pkgs/emacs21.1/i686 
--prefix=/vol/emacs/pkgs/emacs21.1 --with-pop --with-xpm --with-jpeg 
--with-tiff --with-gif --with-png'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: en_US.iso885915
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-9
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


(let ((x '(("TestOne") ("TestTwo")))
      (completion-ignore-case t))
  (print (try-completion "tes"  x))    ;A
  (print (try-completion "test" x))    ;B
  nil)

Results:
  A = "Test"
  B = "test"

I think that B should be "Test".

Same problem when x is an obarray.

Same problem in HEAD rev of Emacs CVS archive.
