Package: bash-completion
Version: 20080617.1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

With that release the bash completion stopped working completely.

An example:

	$ ls a/
	foo/ bar/
	$ ls a/foo/
	aa bb
	$ ls a/bar/
	cc dd
	$ ls a/f TAB
		#	does NOT complete, and
	$ ls a/f TAB TAB
		#	blinks/beeps, then shows a 
It looks like there is an empty/hidden whatever entry there.

And no, there are no . directories in a

So that is really absolutely unusable.
