If minibuffer-confirm-incomplete is nil, then attempting to find a
file (C-x C-f) in a directory that does not exist prompts:

| The directory containing <file> does not exist.  Create? (yes or no)

and if you type "yes" it works as expected.

However, if minibuffer-confirm-incomplete is T, then you get the
following error:

| Opening directory: No such file or directory, <file>

and are returned to the find-file minibuffer prompt.

I fixed this locally some time ago by wrapping (ignore-errors ...) 
around the call to try-completion in the function exit-minibuffer in
minibuf.el, and it seems to solve the problem.
