Hi Chet,

Yes, there is a completion function for ls coming from the _longopt
function from the bash-completion project at debian:

With -x enabled, I see several subprocess lines, i.e. lines indented by
two + instead of one. Some triggered by eval, others by $(...).

I wonder why this breaks things. After all, those subshells should never
print a prompt, should never even look for interactive input. But I take
it you've got your reasons to suspect them. Can this be fixed?
