There is no such bug in 23.3 and 23.4, both suggest test.el as
expected. I can reproduce the issue with 24.1, 24.2 and 24.3, these do
not suggest test.el. Did you try one of the latter with my example
command line with -q and my example file? I also assume you tried
while having additional files in the same directory with names
alphabetically before test.el.

My previous interactive form in test.el seems not to be a good
example, so let me suggest to replace it with test_2.el with an
automated "M-x load-file":

emacs -q test_2.el -f eval-buffer

(ido-mode 1)
(ido-everywhere 1)
(call-interactively 'load-file)

With 23.3 ido suggests the current buffer which I then can select,
with 24.1, 24.2 and 24.3 ido suggest the alphabetically first file of
the current directory, so I have to type the current buffer's file
name again.

Ok, for "M-x load-file" one could argue to use "M-x eval-buffer"
instead. But for "M-x org-babel-load-file" the ido suggestion was very
useful for me as I see no alternative except writing my own wrapper
for 24.1, 24.2 and 24.3 with the function current-buffer.
