Description Jonathan Wakely 2011-09-19 07:55:25 UTC
Description of problem:

tab-completion of a path containing a shell variable insets a backslash to escape the $ in the variable

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  ls $PWD/.<TAB><Enter>
2.  ls $HOME/.<TAB><Enter>

Actual results:

bash-completion inserts a backslash before the $, causing the commands to fail

ls: cannot access $PWD/.: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access $HOME/.: No such file or directory

Expected results:

no backslash, commands work

Additional info:

uninstalling bash-completion didn't help, so I've used Component=bash
