It still works with bash_completion 1.3-1
COMP_WORDBREAKS is the default â "'><=;|&(:â (the string within ââ).
Removing everything in /etc/bash_completion.d did not help
Compared to bash_completion 1.3-1, there is almost nothing in
/etc/bash_completion.d anyway, and there is no /etc/bash_completion file
Right. bash-completion now uses /usr/share/bash-completion, as you can
Moving away my .bashrc (that contains only 'complete -o default make'
wrt completion and that is symlinked to .bash_profile for some arcane
reason) didnât help, either.
The only thing that worked so far (except reverting to bash_completion
1.3-1) is to use bash --norc.
That's a pretty clear indication that the problem is caused by something
in your bash startup files. And the symlink you mentioned could easily
be confusing the issue. Have you tried reverting to the default startup
files (in /etc/defaults/etc/skel)?
[Achim, /etc/defaults/etc/skel/.bashrc has some outdated comments
referring to /etc/bash_completion.]
