Indeed we have a problem.  Usually "completion-ignore-case" as you
expect means "feel free to change my input's case to match the
completions".  But the "quote/requote" thingy generally tries to
preserve the user's input (e.g. so as to keep $HOME rather than replace
it with /home/monnier), which is why here it also preserves the
user's case.

Not sure yet how best to fix this bug.
