Works here to... though taking some time to complete (A minute or so the
first time) - this depends on your hardware (mine is slow).

Hmm... wasn't there a readline/bash option to set, to cancel "empty line"
tab completion attempts?
<rumbing through 'man bash'> Heh? Where is it?

Ahh... :-)

	shopt -s no_empty_cmd_completion

<trying out...>

Well, this seems have no positive effect; the completion attemp is still
done. OTOH if you type a space and THEN hit TAB - the above helps.
