Hi there,

I have bash 4.2.8(2)-release with readline 6.2 running on GNU/Linux.

I've exported a variable and when I press TAB, the result is a backslash.
For example, with the case of the $HOME variable:

$ mkdir $HOME/test
$ cd $HOME/test<TAB>

The result is:

cd \$HOME/test

Instead of showing the full path.

Why bash 4.2 is trying to escape an environment variable (expanding with a
directory or a file)?.

Already discussed. See the discussion starting at http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-bash/2011-02/msg00274.html
