do you have bash-completion, if yes, get rid of it and try again.

Bash completion is installed on my system but never loaded; i.e., /etc/bash_completion is not sourced in '~/.bashrc', or '~/.profile', or anywhere else.

It gets loaded by /etc/profile.d/, which is sourced by /etc/profile.

I wonder if this was a packaging bug in bash-completion. Eric's announcement ( said the following:

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.
