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

(gdb) bt
#0  0x770e01c4 in ntdll!LdrFindResource_U () from C:\Windows\system32\ntdll.dll
