Thanks. Feel free to follow up with me off list. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yes, Icicles toggles Icicle mode twice after you load ibuffer, in order to bind
`M-s i' in `ibuffer-mode-map' to command `icicle-search-ibuffer-marked' (only
when Icicle mode is on).

Your backtrace indicates that `choose-completion-string' is advised. Icicles
does not advise it (instead, it uses `defalias' to redefine it when in Icicle
mode). BBDB advises it, in file `bbdb-com.el'. That explains why the backtrace
for byte-compiling function `choose-completion-string' shows `(if
bbdb-complete-name-callback-data (save-excursion ... ...))'.

In the latest version of Icicles, advice is automatically deactivated (when in
Icicle mode) for any of the standard functions that Icicles redefines (see
variable `icicle-redefined-functions'). (The advice is re-activated when you
quit Icicle mode.) So this problem should not arise in the latest Icicles

But using BBDB in Icicle mode will no longer use the BBDB advice, which might
pose a problem (the advice deletes the completed BBDB name before replacing it).
You can modify the value of `icicle-redefined-functions' to allow the BBDB
advice (hence to also get back the byte-compiler warning).
