Press tab twice if the expansion is not unique.
You do not need bash completion package for filename completion.
Uninstall the package and observe whether it gets better.
Expect filename completion to be slow on slow drives. Includes some network
drives and some external drives.
Completion can be very slow in directories with large number of files.
If anything of that does not hep, try following the rules from
Output of ' cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out 2>&1 ' and OS version might
give some information.
