I too redefined `display-completion-list' in Lisp, and I don't see a
problem. I generally didn't redefine other stuff defined in C - my code
eventually calls those standard functions. I don't, however, use
`minibuffer-completion-help' at all. What were the other places that were

I don't doubt what you're saying - I'm just wondering if what I coded might
help. My definition of `display-completion-list' is in `icicles-fn.el', in
case it helps. You can easily spot and ignore the Icicles-specific
enhancements. Ignore altogether if this doesn't help.

A priori, if the problem is in the C callers to `display-completion-list',
then a different definition of that function wouldn't help. But I'm curious,
because I don't notice the problem you mention.
