Say I want to find-file sprof.lisp in a directory ~/foo containing
the three files



    C-x C-f ~/foo/sprof. TAB

What happens is that point is placed in the minibuffer in front of the
period.  Another TAB shows all three files above in the *Completions*
buffer, which I guess is explainable by a change mentioned in NEWS,
that only the part before point is used for completion.  Moving point
to the end of the minibuffer again, after the period, and ? again
puts point in front of the period and displays all three files in
