I think ido could have similar problems related to completion (it must
expand things like $DIR to be able to present the user with the possible
completions in that directory).  How do you suggest it is fixed?

I see only one possibility -- perform the substitution to make the
completion list, but don't substitute it in the actual file-name read
(as it does now).

Is that the correct approach?
