Package: bash-completion
Version: 20080705
Severity: normal

Attempting to tab complete gdb does not work properly.

The command I am trying to run is:

$ gdm ./bin_linux/a.out core

Using tab completion, the directory "bin_linux" is expanded and ends with a space ' ', intead of a trailing slash. The expected result is a the directroy is expanded to include a trailing /, so the filename can be typed in directly.
