I've never heard of that one ... are you sure "expand-or-complete-prefix"
isn't what you're thinking of?

} Solaris 2.4 on a Sparc).

Can you describe how the behavior changed from before it broke to now?

Is it broken in the same ways in 3.0.3-test5 and the latest 3.1?

The behavior of expand-or-complete-prefix may have been changed when
COMPLETE_IN_WORD was added, or thereabouts ... but I don't recall whether
any such change was intentional.

} There are 2 options:

} I'm happy with either - do we want backward compatibilty?

The problem may be that we now have two different definitions of backward
compatibility -- all the way back to the original you added, or back to
the intermediate versions since COMPLETE_IN_WORD.  I'd like to hear more
details before trying to figure out which is what.
