This surprises me. How do people use this function? if you type a
minimum number of characters and try to complete, the bug in the
original unambiguous prefix code that I tried to demonstrate in that
thread exposes itself rather clearly.

Also, who is responsible for that original code?

| something?

From a checkout of a few weeks ago, the "bug" was put back, there was
no Changelog entry, but I noticed the original buggy behaviour was
back. . You can grep for "unambiguous" in slime.el to find if your
sources are upto date
