SubjectRe: Filename completion(?) bug?

This sounds like a shell issue to me.

The expansion works "correctly" in tcsh 6.06. Bash does not do the
right thing,, at least not with the settings I have.

If you respond, please respond to me directly without cc'ing
linux-kernel. I don't think this discussion belongs on this list.
