Hi Michael,

(No completion)

It used to ask sudo password and then completion was working.

Likely, the changed behaviour comes from my commit
6653bb45d3697c9372cc77773c49f52399740b51, fixing bug#24947.

This commit may be going in the right direction, but do you know why even pressing TAB at the end of the offered scenario doesn't make Emacs ask for password?

The patch below makes Ido ask for password if I type TAB twice. But not after I do that once, which is puzzling. But maybe the function uses the completions already completed for the minibuffer, as a kind of optimization.
