I do not know where or how to report a problem with things on "emacswiki" - so I am trying here.
If someone knows a better place, please let me know.


This problem is specific to:

(A) emacs - windows prebuilt binary from ftp.gnu.org - (downloaded and found this bug yesterday)
    I can also duplicate with emacs-23.1


(C) "cygwin-mount.el" found


(D) Filename(TAB) completion in the minibuffer using the above.

Short description:
  Filename 'tab-completion' with cygwin-mount.el corrupts completion

Steps to reproduce:

(1)  Emacs-23.2 (or 23.1) prebuilt windows binary from ftp.gnu.org

(2) Construct a simple directory structure as follows:

My hunch is this problem has to do with the 'depth' of filenames, or number of slashes present (see VARIANT below)

bash-3.2$ ls -ldptr `find /home/duane/foo -print`
-rwxrwxrwx  1 duane None 6 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/config.log
-rw-rw-rw-  1 duane None 6 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/bar/config.log
-rwxrwxrwx  1 duane None 6 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/config.status
-rw-rw-rw-  1 duane None 6 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/bar/config.status
-rwxrwxrwx  1 duane None 6 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/Makefile
-rw-rw-rw-  1 duane None 6 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/bar/Makefile
drwxrwxrwx+ 2 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/bar/bfd/
drwxrwxrwx+ 2 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:37 /home/duane/foo/bar/intl/
drwxrwxrwx+ 2 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:38 /home/duane/foo/bar/libiberty/
-rwxrwxrwx  1 duane None 4 Sep  4 09:38 /home/duane/foo/serdep.tmp
-rw-rw-rw-  1 duane None 4 Sep  4 09:38 /home/duane/foo/bar/serdep.tmp
-rwxrwxrwx  1 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:39 /home/duane/foo/build.log
-rw-rw-rw-  1 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:39 /home/duane/foo/bar/build.log
drwxrwxrwx+ 5 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:41 /home/duane/foo/bar/
drwxrwxrwx+ 2 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:43 /home/duane/foo/bfd/
drwxrwxrwx+ 2 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:43 /home/duane/foo/intl/
drwxrwxrwx+ 2 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:43 /home/duane/foo/libiberty/
drwxrwxrwx+ 6 duane None 0 Sep  4 09:43 /home/duane/foo/

(3) Type 'ctrl-x, ctrl-x'  [aka: find-file]

(4) In the minibuffer - type/replace the text with:

   /home/duane/foo/bar/conf   (then STOP).

(5) Press <TAB> one time, this causes "filename-completion" to occur.

   The minibuffer shows (adding the "ig<period>"
       Find file: c:/cygwin/home/duane/foo/bar/config.
  AND: The prefix:  "c:/cygwin" becomes *GREY* in the minibuffer.

(6) Press <TAB> a second time, the minibuffer is now corrupt and shows:

   Find file: c:/cygwinc:/cygwin/home/duane/foo/bar/config.

  Note the two "c:/cygwin" prefixes - that is the bug I am reporting

   <TAB> completion no longer works as the candidate text is now corrupt.

(7) If I repeat the process, starting at "/home/duane/foo" - I do not have this problem.



I originally found this when building GDB/Insight from source, and reduced steps to the above sequence.

This problem does not occur with (a) a very old (+5 years) version of 'cygwin-mount.el' and (b) an older version of windows-emacs.

I do not understand emacs lisp and/or the tab-completion code well enough to debug/fix this problem.

VARIANTS - - in this form (and others like it), I cannot reproduce the problem

Step (a) start emacs {I click on a windows short cut to 'runemacs.exe')

Step (b) type ^X-^F, the mini buffer starts at:

       C:\emacs\bin/     -> NOTICE the two different slashes

Step (c) type  /home/duane/foo/bar/con  <STOP> do not press more keys

Mini buffer now shows:
Find file: C:\emacs\bin//home/duane/foo/bar/con

After typing the first "/" (minibuffer shows: "c:\emacs\bin//" - the original content is shown grayed out

Step (d) press TAB to attempt completion.

In this scenario, I cannot cause the problem to occur.
