Package: bash-completion
Version: 1:2.1-4
Followup-For: Bug #550676

Dear Maintainer,

the issue reported still exists -- i was playing around with a bunch of files which are all ZIP archives though with an arbitrary suffix other than .zip.
with none of the tools (file-roller or just unzip) did a file name complete although, given manually both were able to open the files.
as the OP wrote -- if nothing can be completed by the compeltion mechanism, jsut fall back and complete the files in the current directory.
