        when programming an auto-completion with embedded ":" in the
        complete names, the auto-completion does not look good.

        function _xxx() 
                COMPREPLY=( $( compgen -W "x:yyy x:yzz" -- 
                return 0;
        complete -F _xxx -o default xxx
        xxx <TAB>
        xxx x:y<TAB AGAIN>
        xxx x:x:y

        the second auto completion result does not look good. it should have
        displayed the list of choices. It seems that the substitution stuff 
        does not want to go before ":"? It is also possible that I do not
        understand something. If a "-" is put instead of ":", it works 
        properly. Maybe a side effect of url-looking substitutions?
