But you said it returned "/.config/~man" for you (while it returns
"/.config/~man/" for me) (note trailing slash)...

Oh, you don't have a user named "man" on your system?  That explains why
we're getting different results.  And I'm unable to reproduce that here:

(all-completions "~/.config/~notexist" #'read-file-name-internal)
=> nil

So what kind of system are you on?

The confusing bit for me is why there's a "/" at the start of the
returned value, to be honest.  ".config/~man/" should be the correct
value here, I think...
