bug#28513: 25.1; ido insists on guessing the wrong directory

I want to reproduce the usual "save as..." feature that all GUI applications 
offer. But I fail to do so using ido-mode and I suspect a bug. Steps to 
reproduce are described below.

emacs -Q
M-x ido-mode
... I type stuff in the scratch buffer ...
C-x C-w
    (this brings the ido-write-file dialog in the minibuffer. the blue
     prompt is ~/ and all the subdirs are listed in red. fine so far)
... I type a new filename and then hit RETURN
    (this brings a [Confirm] notification in the minibuffer, so I have to hit
     RETURN once more to get the "Wrote /home/user/filename" message)
... I type some more stuff in the (now named) buffer ...
C-x C-w
(this brings the ido-write-file dialog once more, with the same
subdirectories in red)
... I type "k" then RETURN
(the blue prompt now says "Write file: ~/Desktop/" )
(the completions in red disappear ; the "~/Desktop" part of the prompt
becomes black and I can edit the path to my liking. but I don't)

expected behaviour: emacs may or may not ask for a confirmation here, but 
eventually it should save my buffer as ~/Desktop/filename (as is the case with 
M-x write-file)

actual behaviour: emacs decides that I actually didn't want to change 
directories and says: File '~/filename' exists; overwrite ? I can choose either 
"cancel" or "confirm" but neither lead to the correct result.

Is this indeed a bug, or am I missing something obvious ?
