bash completion completely got broken with bash completion 1.9.
It changed the layout from having the stuff in /etc to having the
stuff in /usr/share/bash-completion
Any existing .bashrc file including the one in /etc/skel do still
reference the old location which is not present anymore and thus does
not work anymore. Maybe at least the skel files should be updated and
possibly for compatibility a symlink in from /etc/bash_completion to
Also the following packages still put files in the old completions location:
this still works as the new bash-completion packages looks in the old
folder for this, but I guess those packages should still be updated to
match the new scheme.
