That doesn't seem right.  I was going to suggest something like

        (file-relative-name (expand-file-name completion directory) directory)

but I realized that's equivalent to just completion, so I took a look
at the code in wid-edit.el.  But it's not clear to me (1) why
widget-file-complete expands the pattern nor (2) why it can safely
assume the pattern has a non-nil directory that can be passed as the
second arg to file-name-completion.
