Ideally, when using capital letters those candidates that matched case

C-s, C-r etc stops working on ido after enabling flx.
One Emacs instance started to quickly use memory and had to kill it when
noticed that the system was furiously paging. That Emacs instance was
doing nothing, just showing a prompt of 3 candidates for kill-buffer.
With ido, C-x k (kill-buffer) usually offers the current buffer as the
first candidate. After activating flx, that's not necessarily so.
While navigating directory trees with find-file, at certain point no
candidates where listed as soon as any string was entered. With no
input, all candidates were shown. I was unable to replicate the problem.
