I can reproduce this bug.
when enter the following command line :

	cd ~/Desk 			completion-->  cd \~/Desk

and also with:
	cd ~/ 				completion-->  cd \~/

	~/ 					completion-->  \~/

I work on this bug since 3 days without find exactly where is the issue.
But with gdb I could find functions who are calling by "~/" :

line 75 -- filename_completion_function()


line 72 -- mhl_shell_unescape_buf()  called in filename_completion_function

I think the issue come from the '\\' skipover, but where ? ...

Best regards
