0. emacs -Q
1. M-x customize-option RET read-buffer-completion-ignore-case RET.
   Toggle to "on", set for the current session.
2. Type `C-x b RET a', then `C-x b RET A', then `C-x b RET ahjk', then
   switch to buffer *scratch*.
3. C-x b a TAB => Emacs correctly reports: "[Complete, but not unique]"
4. TAB => *Completions* buffer contains, as expected: A a ahjk.
5. C-x k ahjk RET.
6. C-x b a TAB => Emacs incorrectly reports: "[Sole completion]".
7. C-x b A TAB => Emacs incorrectly reports: "[Sole completion]".

In contrast, if I have files named `a' and `A', set
read-file-name-completion-ignore-case to non-nil and type `C-x C-f a
TAB', the *Completions* buffer shows, as expected, both `a' and `A'.
