Err, right.  Add -S '' to the compctl-line.  But that leaves the cursor
directly after normal files, too.  If you want to fix this, the easiest
solution would probably be to use two different functions...

Get rid of the loacl-declaration of `argv', it's automatically local anyway.

Given that, I'd strongly suggest you use the new completion system on
all those 3.1.9 and 4.0.1 machines.

One of them has problems with `ps -x', I guess.
