This was reported eight years ago, but when I try, say, `M-x man RET Xt
TAB', I get completions like

XTestCompareCurrentCursorWithWindow(3)  XTestCompareCursorWithWindow(3)
XTestDiscard(3)         XTestFakeButtonEvent(3)
XTestFakeKeyEvent(3)    XTestFakeMotionEvent(3)
XTestFakeRelativeMotionEvent(3)         XTestGrabControl(3)
XTestQueryExtension(3)  XTestSetGContextOfGC(3)
XTestSetVisualIDOfVisual(3)     XtAddActions(3)
XtAddCallback(3)        XtAddCallbacks(3)
XtAddConverter(3)       XtAddEventHandler(3)
XtAddExposureToRegion(3)        XtAddGrab(3)

So I'm guessing that this has been fixed at some point, and I'm closing
this bug report.  If you're still seeing this, please reopen.
