Thank you, Marcin, for taking a look at 21284.

I apologize for mislabeling the variable.  It turns out that the same erroneous 
behavior is observable with Emacs -Q.  The `*Completions*` are in reverse 
alphabetical order.

Step 1:  Launch the graphical version of Emacs -Q.

Step 2:  M-x eshell

Step 3:  cd to a directory containing files and folders with a variety of 
different names beginning with letters a to z.

Step 4:  type rm

Step 5:  hit the space bar

Step 6:  hit the tab key

Step 7:  The *Completions* are in reverse alphabetical order.
