Re: Minibuffer completion and M-<TAB>

    I believe I know the difference, but still I often try to complete 
    symbols in the minibuffer with just TAB. And this help text seems to 
    imply it should, doesn't it?

TAB is for completing _a minibuffer argument_.
M-TAB completes a Lisp symbol, which in this cases can occur
within a minibuffer argument, but completing a symbol is not the
same thing as completing a minibuffer argument.
