Because he wants it to still complete to the things in $PATH (or STDIN,
in this case) but doesn't want to see it. I still agree that it's stupid.

In regards to OP: So write a patch that creates a flag that hides all
stdin until the input string is non-empty. Should be trivial. However,
don't expect it to go mainline. This is a tiny corner use-case and I
suspect that many dmenu users would find it stupid.
