Description Michael 2013-10-06 20:47:14 EDT
Description of problem:

Bash completion handles HostName entries in .ssh/config that have "%h" in them incorrectly. It displays the string containing %h as a list of ssh targets, which is an error because hostnames of the form %h.domain.com never exist.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an entry to ~/.ssh/config like the following:

Host red green
    HostName %h.acmepaint.com

2. Type "ssh" and press tab to expand the list of known hosts

Actual results:

The string "%h.acmepaint.com" shows up in the list, ex:

  green %h.acmepaint.com red

Expected results:

It should either expand the %h entry as ssh does, or not show it at all. That is, either display

  green red

or display

  green green.acmepaint.com red red.acmepaint.com

Additional info:

The %h shorthand feature was added in OpenSSH 5.6 to let users create more concise .ssh/config files. The shortcut above replaces these two "spelled out" entries:
Host green
    HostName green.acmepaint.com
Host red
    HostName red.acmepaint.com
