I don't know, I haven't checked.  I just noted that you seem to be the
only one who reported problems with it so far while it works fine for
me (and not only for me as I positively know that other people also
use slime-complete-symbol*).

My completely egoistic preference is that the behaviour where point
ends up directly after the shortest unambiguous prefix is kept as is.
If you insist on modifying this function, I'd suggest that you send a
patch which a) works around your problems without changing what the
function does or b) adds a customization option so that one can
optionally force the function to work the way you want it.  I know
that Helmut doesn't like customizations, but for me they're fine -
most of them I simply ignore hoping that the default is fine... :)
