Re: bug in file-name-shadow-mode

    Do C-g to quit the current minibuffer.   Then do C-x C-f.
    One now has ~/ in the minibuffer.  If you type an extra "/", the "~/"
    preceding it does not get any special highlighting, as it should if
    file-name-shadow-mode is t.

The cause of this is that the minibuffer binds minibuffer-setup-hook
and therefore the local binding is what gets set.  Thus, exiting the
minibuffer wipes it out.

I think there is nothing to be done about this.  It would be hard to
fix and it probably isn't worth the trouble.
