Bash Version: 5.1
Patch Level: 16
Release Status: release

     Tab completing `/ (backtick-slash) causes bash to print lots of
     weird error messages.

Thanks for the report. It's trying to find the end of the directory name to
see whether or not to append a slash. You can use $(/ instead, which
behaves the way you want.
