I run
emacs -Q -l ~/tmp/testcompletion.el

then hit the following keys: C-h f m i n i b u f TAB RET

After "TAB" I get :
minibufferp [Matched]
in the minibuffer.

I'm assuming that's because of (setq completion-cycle-threshold t).

After "RET" I get a description of `minibuffer-depth' which is totally
unexpected to me. I expected a description of the function `minibufferp'.

Apparently, that's because minibuffer-force-complete, called from minibuffer-force-complete-and-exit, somehow interprets it as a repeated invocation.

Maybe it should examine last-command and do something with it, instead of performing the completion-in-region voodoo it's doing now. Or minibuffer-force-complete-and-exit should call a non-cycling version.
