Hi Samuel,

org-goto is different because it only goes to the
current file.  Refile was originally meant to
go to a selected class of headings.  You can use the refile
command itself including its setup to *go* some place
by calling org-refile with a prefix argument.  A double prefix
will make the command jump directly to the location where
the last refile event delivered its content.

I have no time to debug ido, I am afraid, unless you can
show that the table I pass to ido is invalid.
