I'm not sure if this is a false alarm, but I have another error in my
original post, due to my haste in cobbling together an arbitrary
example.  In actuality, completion does not fail for "ls _v".  It
fails for "find _v".  But it works for other commands like ls and
find.  Again, lack of completion fails only when trying to specify
filenames starting with underscore as arguments to the find command.
