   Funny -- I *just* ran into this problem now.  Yes, I wish this were
   fixed.  I don't know how to fix it, unless there's another mechanism
   that uses full-blown regular expressions.

If I understand correctly, one does not want a directory name to
complete to "CVS", but one _does_ want directory names to complete to
strings ending in CVS.  In that case, why not keep it simple and just
remove "CVS/" from `completion-ignored-extensions'?  Trying to exclude
a three letter name from completion does not seem to be worth any trouble.
