I wonder if this was a packaging bug in bash-completion. Eric's
You MUST edit your bash startup files to load bash-completion into
memory: make sure ~/.bashrc sources /etc/bash_completion, and
~/.bash_profile sources ~/.bashrc. See /etc/defaults/etc/skel/.bashrc
(after installing base-files-3.7-1) for an example. Bash completions is
not enabled by default because it adds some noticeable startup delay to
every interactive shell (about 1.5 seconds on my 2.5 GHz WinXP).
Depending on the reaction on the cygwin mailing list, a future release
may make bash_completion turned on by default for every bash user, with
no edits to ~/.bashrc required.
