Re: 1.5.25-7: problem about bash completion
o, maybe you are right.
But I am a little confused. "//server/share" is the POSIX syntax for
SMB share paths, but on windows the syntax is "\\server\share".
And why on linux I input "cd //usr/<tab>", the completion would not
become slow, i.e. why on linux, the syntax "//xxx/xxx" would not be
considered as remote SMB share. (except "smbclient //server/share")
