problem in cd in bash (maybe an RFE);

In Bash Ver 4.4.5, cdspell is confused by non-directory
items in the same dir.

1   Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/re
2   Records/   record*
3   Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/rec<tab>
4 Records/ record 5 Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/record<tab> 6 Records/ record 7 Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/records<CR> # add 's' & hit return
8   -bash: cd: _archive/records: Not a directory

If I change record -> records.tmp, it works:

1   Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/re<tab>
2   Records/     records.tmp
3   Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/records<CR>
4   _archive/Records
5   Ishtar:law/mail/_archive/Records>

If I add '*' it works:

Ex3 (continuing from Ex1#8, above):
1   Ishtar:law/mail> cd _archive/records*<CR>
2   Ishtar:law/mail/_archive/Records>

I'm guessing Ex3 works due to the 'nocaseglob' (?).

Ex2 seems to work due to cdspell (?).

So why does Ex1 fail?  Could it be made to work w/o
"fruity-side dishes"? (crazy/wacky side effects)  :-)
