I have applied this patch. I try an example to expand to
"emacs-lisp-mode" by:

  M-x e l m TAB

The minibuffer shows "M-x e-l-m (no matches)" while the *completions* is

    Click <mouse-2> on a completion to select it.
    In this buffer, type RET to select the completion near point.
    Possible completions are:
    emacs-lisp-mode                    emms-lyrics-mode
    erc-log-mode                       ess-listing-minor-mode

Do you think this is a bug?
