The function basically calls this function:

(locate-file-completion-table '("~/src/emacs/trunk/lisp/image") '(".el$") "" 
nil t)
=> ("compface.el" "compface.elc" "../" "gravatar.elc" "./" "gravatar.el")

And as we can see, the output from that function isn't quite what you'd
expect.  Isn't SUFFIXES supposed to limit the output?
