Hi -

I ran into a similar issue and I believe I have a possible fix to two

1) ido's tab completion was broken with org-mode because the list of choices
needs to be a list of strings.  The current implementation of
presents that as a list of consed strings.  Close!  But not quite the same.
amazed it actually worked.

2) For reasons I haven't fully untangled, ido-enter-matching-directory can
with deeply nested project paths, so I've rudely set it to nil.  I think
that var is only
a problem when it is set to t - the other options ('first or 'only) appear
to be safer.

Only some minor changes to org-ido-completing-read

   (defun org-ido-completing-read (&rest args)
     "Completing-read using `ido-mode' speedups if available"
     (if (and org-completion-use-ido
          (fboundp 'ido-completing-read)
          (boundp 'ido-mode) ido-mode
          (listp (second args)))
         (let ((ido-enter-matching-directory nil))
       (apply 'ido-completing-read (concat (car args))
                 (mapcar (lambda (x) (car x)) (nth 1 args))
                 (cddr args)))
       (apply 'completing-read args)))

Even with this fix, I'm seeing some lingering pains.  Specifically if you
press tab
multiple times, the range of choices is truncated to a subset.

When I have more free time, I'll research it some more.
