Many thanks.  It does work as suggested with the above code snippet.
As for the documentation, well yes that would make sense.  But would
it be also useful to put it under Emacs-Minibuffer-Completion Commands
section in the info manual?  

Similar to the way, how Emacs recognises sentences (2 spaces vs
1aftera period) and how the manual explains how to switch from one to
the other, I think, there should be a similar explanation in the main
info manual.
