suddenly lost tab-completion on root dir

- Subject: suddenly lost tab-completion on root dir
I'm having a strange behavior in my cygwin bash shell. I've tried to
search the web for answers without any luck.
The thing is that after some changes (don't recall what I was doing,
probably updating a package) I lost my tab-completion on the root dir
(/). If I hit tab on anything in this dir it doesn't complete or give a
list of options in ambigous cases. The strange thing is that it does do
it in the all other directories.
For example, it won't tab-complete:
/ -> listing of possibilities
/u -> /usr
but it will tab-complete:
/usr/ -> listing of possibilities
/usr/lo -> /usr/local
Has anyone experienced something similar? or something comes to mind as
the possible cause of the problem? I have updated the packages that I
have installed; and I can't afford a complete reinstall at the moment.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
