In the zile working directory:


Correctly shows the '[Complete but not unique]' suffix in the minibuffer, but
then trying to select Makefile.am with the help of the tab key:


actually deletes the .a leaving just Makefile again, rather than completing the name of Makefile.am ready for selection with RET.
