I can confirm this doesn't work for me either. The problem is with tcsh; I'm
using the version below:
tcsh 6.11.00 (Astron) 2001-09-02 (i386-intel-posix) options
tcsh.exe crashes if I try to run it with strace (!). I've attached the trace
I get to help diagnosis. I tried various different ways to coax tcsh to
trace correctly, but none of them worked.
Name completion does work however. If I type 'ls ~/' and then press Tab it
will show me a list of files in my home directory. If I select a file or
directory, then I still get the error "No such file or directory".
