Unusual behavior aside, I don't think our general completion logic will
work well when input has little correlation to the completion results
(function names).
I don't understand the response: what I wrote had no relation to
completion whatsoever.  Maybe you responded to the wrong message?

'C-h f' uses completing-read to help the user input the function they'll see the description for.
