Interesting. I might un-install bash-completion. But I will first
experiment. According to /usr/share/doc/bash-completion/README, I can
use M-/ to force completion. For the "M", I unsuccessfully
experimented with the Windows key, Alt, and Ctl. Then I tried to seek
more details. The source for info about M-/ is described as the man
page. However, it's not clear to me how to invoke the man page for
bash-completion. The man page for bash should be for the bash-native
completion. The cygwin package search doesn't show much for
documentation besides /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/bash-completion.README.
Can anyone suggest how the bash-completion man page is acccessed, and
what M-/ means?
