[Bash-completion-devel] Bug#487609: bash-completion: sed error when autocompleting for evince

Package: bash-completion
Version: 20080617.2
Severity: normal

currently bash autocompletion fails for evince and kpdf.  the error is:

  sed: -e expression #1, char 20: unterminated address regex

to reproduce this, do

$ touch file.pdf
$ evince fi<TAB>

autocompletion seems to work just fine for applications other than
evince and kpdf.

thanks for the hard work.
