While I understand that this patch in launchpad fixes the reported behaviour, I don't understand why upstream did not want to accept it. Could there be unintended/undesired side-effects? >https://superuser.com/questions/823257/unexpected-bash-glob-completion-uses-first-match-even-if-ambiguous > >Could this be fixed in the Debian package? :-) I could definitely apply this to the Debian package, but I want to take this questioning upstream first. It's been a long time, and maybe they have a better understanding of the problem, now. I don't have a good understanding of the problem, myself. :) Thanks for reporting.
