When I type `C-next' I expect it acting on the _next_ completion candidate
(`next' + `C-RET').  When I want it acting on the _current_ completion 
I can simply type `C-RET'.

It is a pity that you changed your original design.  Displaying the result
of action applied to the previous completion candidate with the name of
the next completion candidate highlighted in the *Completions* window is
as confusing as for instance if you typed `next-error' and see the previous
match in the source buffer with the next match highlighted in the
grep/compilation buffer.
