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

In an arbitrary directory, for example in /tmp , I have a file named iptraffic.log and a directory called iptrafvol. In emacs I type C-x C-f to try to load iptraffic.log and type "/tmp/ip<tab>" where <tab> means the tab key. Then tab completion completes to the "/tmp/iptrafvol/" directory and ignores the iptraffic.log file.

byte-code: Command attempted to use minibuffer while in minibuffer

Fundamental principle of Buddhism is purposelessness. Most important
to attain state of no purpose. When you drop fart, you don't say 'At
9:00, I drop fart.' It just happen.
