Hello Stefan,

I'm still learning how that completion table stuff is working.

I think, since Icicles doesn't respect quoting all the time anyway, we
should suffice with this completion table:

(completion-table-in-turn #'completion--embedded-envvar-table
                          #'completion-file-name-table)  ; not: 

which would circumvent the problem.

But I have another question:

(all-completions "/usr/share/emacs/24.1.50/lisp/$HO"

returns ("HOME").  What I would expect is ("$HOME").  Is this a bug?  If
not, is there a way to get ("$HOME")?

Thank you for your patience,
