I've been trying to look at the source, to find what the problem is. But
with my limited knowledge I could use some assistance.

Looking at the "ssh" completion, it seems hosts are coming from the
"hostcomplete" variable / parameter. But I haven't found where this one is
coming from.
I tried disabling loading the "~/.ssh/config" file in the "bash-completion"
script, but this didn't make a difference.

Could someone perhaps explain where the "hostcomplete" is coming from, so I
might be able to debug this further?
