Sorry, I am afraid you misunderstood my response.  The original report
concerned bash's built-in word completion, and the change you refer to
fixes that case.  It's not visible to users, since it changes the
setting temporarily in a place where users cannot do it.

You're using the bash_completion package, and it does not handle running
with `-u' enabled very well.  I don't think bash should be changing
something where it ends up being user-visible to compensate for a case
the script didn't anticipate -- that's the script's business.
