Ah, well you didn't mention completion in either of your 2 previous

It does seem to be a bug, that read-file-name signals an error when
insert-default-directory is non-nil and DIR is a relative file name, and
the user types TAB or ?.  So I'm cross-posting this to gnu.emacs.bug and
directing followups there.
