bug#16943: 24.3.50; [PATCH] `icomplete-exhibit' needs `with-current-buff

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#16943: 24.3.50; [PATCH] `icomplete-exhibit' needs `with-current-buffer' for minibuffer
Date: Wed, 5 Mar 2014 10:50:07 -0800 (PST)

I have noticed, with both my version (icomplete+.el) and vanilla
icomplete.el, that in some cases no match of the user input is found
because the field string gets picked up from buffer *Completions*, not
from the minibuffer.

This might be because in my case I use a separate frame for the
minibuffer and for *Completions* (the latter has its input redirected to
the former).

The fix that seems most appropriate, I think, is this: wrap the body of
the `icomplete-exhibit' code with this:

 (with-current-buffer (window-buffer (active-minibuffer-window))


(defun icomplete-exhibit ()
  "Insert Icomplete completions display.
Should be run via minibuffer `post-command-hook'.
See `icomplete-mode' and `minibuffer-setup-hook'."
  (when (and icomplete-mode
             (icomplete-simple-completing-p)) ;Shouldn't be necessary.
    (with-current-buffer (window-buffer (active-minibuffer-window))
        (goto-char (point-max))
