emacs -Q
 
(defcustom foo ()
  "..."
  :type '(repeat (cons
                  string
                  (choice
                   (const flimpo)
                   (const nil)
                   (other t))))
  :group 'edit)
 
M-x customize-option foo
 
Click button INS.
 
(Optional: Enter something in field `String'.)
 
Choose `Other' in `Value Menu'.
 
An INS button pops up inappropriately under `Choice'.  If you click it
then it shows that it expects another `repeat' cell, at the wrong level.
 
If you click the outer (i.e., the correct) INS button, it behaves
normally.  But if you then choose `Other' in its `Value Menu' you get
the same problem again.
 
This broken behavior happens as long as you choose `Other' in `Value
Menu'.  If you choose one of the other possibilities then Customize
behaves correctly.
 
To me this is clearly a bug.  But it is so all the way back through
Emacs 20.  So I wonder - am I right?  I cannot believe that this
behavior is correct.  What am I missing?
