It is a "feature" of other completion tools that differentiate between the
selected candidate (usually the highlighted one) and the current input
(which may be incomplete, and usually not what you want to select, but
sometimes is (e.g. when you want an empty string, or to choose something
that is not a candidate but similar to one e.g. with fuzzy matching)). That
happens with helm and ivy, probably selectrum, and other backends that try
to improve on the vanilla completing-read interface.
