Package: bash-completion
Version: 1:2.1-4
Severity: normal


After the upgrade to jessie typing "pmount /med" and then the tab key
hangs the terminal.

ps ax --forest shows:

10975 pts/4    Ss     0:00  \_ bash
10982 pts/4    S      0:00      \_ bash
10992 pts/4    S+     0:00          \_ grep /proc/mounts
10993 pts/4    S+     0:00          \_ sed -e s,.*\($mdir/[^ ]*\).*,\1,

After a "kill 10992 10993" (in another terminal) and pressing
the enter key in the affected terminal you get the message:

Error: could not determine real path of the device: No such file or directory
