        When trying to complete on a link to a directory, the completion stops 
completing it as though it was a directory instead just a file.  For instance I,
        cd /ar[tab] 
and the completion is /archive
when what I am looking for is /archive/

The main problem is that when I have deep tree I want to get to I typically go
through at typing sequence like:
and now I have to type either:

I searched diligently to see if this was a setting by RH in the move from 2.0.4
to 2.0.5a and I found nothing.  I also could not find mention of a setting in
the manual that controls this behavior.  I realize that this could be a 
design decision for some reason, but I need to change it.

        make any link to a directory and then try to tab complete on that link, 
will find that it does not add the ending / automatically.  You can either tab
again, or type the / manually.
