bug#499: 23.0.60; minibuffer tab completion regression


From: James Cloos
Subject: bug#499: 23.0.60; minibuffer tab completion regression
Date: Sun, 29 Jun 2008 06:05:10 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.110011 (No Gnus v0.11) Emacs/23.0.60 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

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

Sometime in the last week tab completion of pathnames in the minibuffer
when running commands like gnus-mime-save-part has broken.

Before, it would give a prompt for the specified filename in the last
directory I'd saved something to (or ~/ the first time it is called)
and I could simply type in the pathname with tab completion just like
in bash.

Now, the tab completion seems to treat the proffered filename as part
of what it should be completing, rather than ignoring it as it used to.

In short, pathname tab completion used to ignore everything at and right
of point whereas now it does not.

It worked with a build from the 14th; I /think/ also with one from the
21st.  It is broken with a build from the 27th.


If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/share/emacs/23.0.60/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
