I recently put Fedora Core 15 on my system, and I've had a behaviour change that I can't figure out. Using Tab-Complete in the BASH shell works fine except when I use the $HOME variable.
If I type
cd $HOME/dTAB, it will auto-complete to the proper directory (doc), but it also inserts a preceding
\, so the result is
cd \$HOME/doc. This then fails, as such a path does not exist.
The error is
bash: cd: $HOME/doc: No such file or directory
If I don't use Tab-Complete it works, as $HOME still points to the proper directory. Where did this extra
\ come from, and how do I make it go away?
