It's because when we

    (string-prefix-p s2 string completion-ignore-case)
instead of

    (string-prefix-p s2 res completion-ignore-case)

we still get the correct result if `string` also happens to begin with
`s2` (in your cases, `s2` is short, typically the same number of chars
as the number of backslashes in your argument).
