Note that Angelo tested with passwd and group files and without
nsswitch.conf, which amounts to the default settings

     passwd: files db
     group:  files db
     db_home: cygwin desc
     db_shell: cygwin desc
     db_gecos: cygwin desc
     db_enum: cache builtin

I cannot reproduce the problem either, using the same environment
(passwd & group files, no nsswitch.conf) and using either bash or tcsh.

The "~" TAB completion is independent of the current CWD, and that's
what I see here.

Angelo, Andrey's idea to check $HOME is interesting.  Also, does
`getent passwd <your accountname>' print the expected stuff, and does
the home dir in the entry agree with $HOME?
