Hard to create a test case ...
mostly because just making a buffer read-only doesn't put the
read-only property on a string. But certain Emacs apps
emacs-jabber is one that comes to mind, carefully annotate
portions of the buffer with the read-only property --- and when
completion picks up one of those strings, the bug appears to

This is one of those things that happens a couple of times a week
while you're using emacs fluently, and it's difficult to
reproduce the exact circumstances.
