Interesting.  I might un-install bash-completion.  But I will first
experiment.  According to /usr/share/doc/bash-completion/README, I can
use M-/ to force completion.  For the "M", I unsuccessfully
experimented with the Windows key, Alt, and Ctl.  Then I tried to seek
more details.  The source for info about M-/ is described as the man
page.  However, it's not clear to me how to invoke the man page for
bash-completion.  The man page for bash should be for the bash-native
completion.  The cygwin package search doesn't show much for
documentation besides /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/bash-completion.README.

Can anyone suggest how the bash-completion man page is acccessed, and
what M-/ means?
