I don't know if it's necessary, but I suggest that we not change
anything at this point that does not fix a clear bug.

I cannot reproduce that, for me "M-x cust[TAB]" yields `customize'
(sic, without the trailing dash that you show above), and tapping on
TAB 2 more times shows a completion buffer where all completions begin
with "customize", with a lower-case `c'.

Do you see this problem in "emacs -Q"?
