Uhm.. to be honest I haven't even noticed that upstream doesn't want to accept it? :-D At least I think to remember that this wasn't always buggy... it only happened in <admittedly long ago and I was probably too lazy for years to investigate&report ^^>. I cannot really say for sure whether there are undesired side effects... I mean bash-completion should anyway only be active in interactive sessions, right? So scripts shouldn't take any harm. And for interactive sessions (or such who kinda hack a script to behave like in an interactive one)... people must always expect that such changes occur in new versions. > I could definitely apply this to the Debian package, but I want to > take > this questioning upstream first.

Thanks a lot for taking the effort :-) What I personally would probably even like more was, if * is just not completed at all... but completing it only to one "random" match is just pointless. Thanks, Chris.
