RE: In "M-x gdb", filename completion with mouse erases the default gdb

Sure.  (I did start emacs with -Q, previously, when I tested
and reported the bug.  The behavior is no different if started
with -q.)

1.  cd to a directory which contains two or more executables
beginning with the same first few letters, e.g. testOne,
testTwo, and testThree.

2.  Run "emacs -Q &"

3.  Start the debugger:  "M-x gdb"

4.  In the minibuffer, you should see the gdb prompt followed
    by "gdb --annotate=3 testOne".

5.  Delete the last three characters "One", then press TAB.

6.  The *Completions* buffer will appear.  Click <mouse-2>
    on the filename "testTwo".

7.  In the minibuffer, after the prompt, only "testTwo" will
    remain.  The filename selected in the *Completions* buffer
    replaced the entire text after the prompt, instead of
    just replacing the incomplete word at the end of the line.

Can you determine a a *precise* test case for this bug?  The test
case should start with `emacs -q', so that your .emacs file does not
affect it, and it should show exactly what text to put in the buffer,
what commands to execute, and how and where to click.

With this, we will be able to debug it.
