Installing bash-completion package slows down bash startup 20-30x

Apologies if this is a duplicate, I never saw it appear on the list.
After installing bash-completion, bash startup goes from about 1/2 second to 10-15 seconds. During this time, the bash process (as viewed in Process Explorer) consumes almost no CPU time, but the System process (PID 4) is pegged at 100% on one core. As soon as bash finishes starting up PID4 cpu time goes to zero. This is highly repeatable on my system:
I removed bash-completion and bash startup time went back to the usual 1/2 second.
