This is very easy to do, I mostly haven't already because I didn't see
any compelling reason to build on later machines (I'm not aware of any
10.10-10.13 dependent features the same way that say full screen mode
only works in 10.9 and later).

Thanks for the info. When you have a moment could you please try building on OS X 10.10 and then testing the result? I assume OS X 10.10 has a file /etc/passwd so you could run something like this:

ln -s /etc/passwd .
src/emacs -Q -batch -eval '(message "%S" (file-name-completion "pass" "."))'

This should output "passwd" (assuming that the build directory has no other entry beginning with "pass"), but if the bug I'm hypothesizing is triggered, than it will output "passwd/".
