It's not directly related to colored stats, and it only is a problem in
bash-4.3/readline-6.3.  Readline-6.3 has a stat hook that it calls to
allow the application to expand completed filenames before it calls stat,
so you can complete a variable name that expands to a directory and have
a slash appended.  You can get around it by turning off all stat-related
variables, which are probably already off, and disabling mark-directories.
You might discover that disabling appending a slash to completed
directories is too high a price to pay.
