Seems to work fine in this situation. Starting with 'emacs -Q', no extra

This must have changed recently because I

emacs -Q
M-x fido-mode
C-x C-f
M-x ---> error message

It's... weird. M-x doesn't work inside 'C-x C-f', but it does work inside 'C-h f', for example.

That seems like a bug, one way or another.

On GNU Emacs 27.0.60 (build 2, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d
scroll bars) of 2020-02-01

Or to feel that I can't rely on REQUIRE-MATCH when calling
completing-read in a program.

Well, a sufficient level of paranoia will always give you that
feeling :-) , given that you yourself reported that that M-x thing
works.  My advice is: move along, it's OK, Emacs's users aren't
(all) doofuses. :-)

Emacs allows us to redefine basically everything. But there's a meaningful difference between forcing the user to call a magic command to enter the "dragon land", and having that command by default in the keymap.

And thanks for the patches.  I expect to be using much more
RET now (which is a good thing), fallback to M-j if it doesn't work
and fallback to C-u M-j if I'm reaaally in a tight spot.

Cheers!
