Yes, I can see now it is a bit frustrating if you do not see the bug
and think my description is not precise enough. Sorry.

I just enter any text in the file field, for example "aaa" and then
with point still in this field I do "M-x widget-complete". This gives
me all of the files in default-directory in the *Completions* buffer.

Don't you see the same? What Emacs are you testing with?
