When cycling through the *Completions* window that pops up when I type,
say, `cd <TAB>' in eshell using the M-<down> and M-<up> key bindings, I
then select a completion (in this case a directory to cd into) using
M-<return>, but instead of inserting the chosen completion into my
eshell buffer, I get a message in the minibuffer saying "Text is read
only". To replicate after starting `emacs -Q':

1. `M-x eshell'
2. Type `cd' and then hit <TAB>
3. Cycle through the *Completions* buffer that pops up with M-<down> and
4. Select a completion with M-<return>
