From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-SGI_XFS_1.0 i686)

Description of problem:
When I try to complete (TAB key in tcsh) paths for files in my home
directory mounted via NFS/NIS, some of them will not be
recognized/displayed. Nevertheless, they are accessible and appear when I
do a 'ls' on the directory. Another problem might be related: CVS stops
with errors when it tries to checkout projects which create directories
that are affected by the problem described above. Important: with Red Hat
7.0 (kernel 2.2.16) none of these problems occured.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mount home directory via ypbind, autofs, and nfs.
2. 'cd' to one of the affected directories (not all directories/files are
3. make a 'ls'
4. try path completion with TAB key	

Actual Results:  see example below: the path completion for 'cd' does not
display directory 'multitrac' although it is available (see output of

> cd project/src/
> ls
image  multicast  multitrac  skeleton.h  test  timecast
> cd [TAB]
image/      multicast/  skeleton.h  test/       timecast/

Expected Results:  Hitting the TAB key after 'cd' should have produced a
list of available files/directories in the current directory, includeing
