Hello Norbert,

Sorry, you must be doing something extremely wrong on your system.

  $ dlocate /usr/sh<TAB>


  $ dlocate /usr/share/

For this, I just installed dlocate, and didn't touch anything else. And no, we 
still don't have a dlocate completion :)

I believe this would involve changing each completion, providing "compgen -f" 
in COMPREPLY if nothing is found.

Have nice holidays!
