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

Hmm - maybe this is a case of a copy and paste bug on my part. Certainly, before bash-completion 1.0, you had to manually enable things. But it looks like 1.0 and later (first cygwin build in Apr 2009) inherit the upstream default of automatic enabling.

I'll have to revisit that next time I package bash-completion, and either fix the release notes to match reality, or alter the packaging to restore the manual enabling (but note that other distros like Fedora do automatic enabling if you install the package, so that's the direction I'm leaning in).
