indeed turning partial-completion-mode off "fixed" the problem.
so now we know what is broken - it is partial-completion-mode,
not the main completion.
(I have had partial-completion-mode enabled for 2+ years and I have
not experienced this weirdness until very recently).

because "config." should complete to "config.h.in" in a directory with 3
files listed above.

thanks for your help!

There are two kinds of egotists: 1) Those who admit it  2) The rest of us
