Hello,

in emacs -Q (with default-directory -> ~/)

  (read-file-name-default "File: " nil nil nil "~/.bash_history" nil)

prompts with default minibuffer contents "/:~/~/.bash_history".  No part
of that is shadowed (to indicate which part is meaningful).  Without
fully understanding how the initial contents are calculated, it doesn't
seem very useful with the doubled ~/.  Why can't INITIAL be used
literally?

TIA,

Michael.
