With Cygwin-1.7.34-003 (Cygwin64) I can reproduce systematically a 
completion issue reproducible with the following steps.

Notice, in my HOME I have a directory called 'work'.

Boot Windows (W7U64) and login. Start MinTTY.

   $ ls -lrt ~/w[TAB]

it produces

$ ls -lrt ~/work/

so with an Enter, I can list work,

$ ls -lrt ~/work/[ENTER]
totale 10104
[...]

and is is OK.

Now

$ cd /tmp/[ENTER]
$ ls -lrt ~/work/[ENTER]
ls: impossibile accedere a /ho3/work/: No such file or directory

Returnig at HOME:

$ cd[ENTER]
$ ls -lrt ~/work/[ENTER]
ls: impossibile accedere a /ho3/work/: No such file or directory

This happens with and without a default /etc/nsswitch.conf file; with 
only /etc/{passwd,group} files (no nsswithch.conf).

Reinstalling 1.7.33 and the /etc/{passwd,group} files created at first 
default installation fixes the issue.


Ciao,
  Angelo.
