Auto-completion with yum and dnf

Description of problem:
When trying to install a package with e.g. "sudo dnf install lib", performing tab completion results in dnf immediately asking for the root (or user) password, as shown in the attachment. After authenticating, completion is no longer possible and dnf starts trying to install whatever name fragment was entered.

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

How reproducible:
At any time the user has to authenticate for sudo.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Invoke tab completion on a "sudo dnf install" command.

Actual results:
dnf requests authentication and breaks off the completion.

Expected results:
Require root access only for actually installing, not for listing package database contents, like yum.

Additional info:
The same operation performed with yum is also included in the attachment.

Elad can you please take a look and decide how to handle this?

Auto-completion results

After reading through some more reports against dnf, I can confirm that this issue does not occur with dnf-plugins-core (0.0.5-2) also installed; in this case the completion matching is performed very quickly. However, yum and dnf report different numbers of possible matches (see attachment).

The problem still exist if i set it as alias, i.e. `alias dnf="sudo dnf" on ~/.bashrc.
