Not only still fails for me, I can even make it hang Emacs.
M-! "C:/Progra <TAB> => "[no match]"
M-! C:/Progra <TAB> => c:/Program
<TAB> => offers possible completions: "Program Files",
"Program Files (x86)" and "ProgramData"
<SPACE> <TAB> => no answer, not even [no match]
\ <SPACE> <TAB> => "[no match]"
<TAB> => Emacs hangs
Sometimes it needs a few more <TAB>, or <BACKSPACE> <SPACE> <TAB>
again, but it hangs every time.
After interruping it, the backtrace is
#0 0x770e01c4 in ntdll!LdrFindResource_U () from C:\Windows\system32\ntdll.dll
0x3410480 There is no member named size.
