In your examples, you hit "/usr/lib/libthr TAB" which does not display
the completions for "libthr" but instead performs the completion.
You only get a *Completions* buffer on the second TAB, at which point
the minibuffer input is "/usr/lib/libthreadweaver.so.4" for which
there's no *.so file to display any more.
If instead of the first TAB you press ? then you'll see the .so
file listed.
