The last word in that discussion appears to have been   Sven, do you
recall whether you every did anything specific to this?

I remarked in 11742:

} Currently _rpm uses `-p+' as the spec for the -p option.  That means that

} If we remove the `+', then "rpm -qpc" doesn't match the spec `-p', and so
} completion doesn't enter the `package_file' state -- it instead enters the
} `package_or_file' state (the default spec from the `query' state).

This is no longer the problem; remove the `+' and `rpm -qpc <TAB>' completes
package file names exactly as it should.  However, `rpm -qp<TAB>' inserts a
space rather than completing `c' et al.

Based on my exchange with Sven as quoted in 11793, I'd say that _rpm needs
another ->state in order to handle bunched query options following -qp, or
at least that the package_file state needs to be tweaked somehow.  In the
meantime, if you don't mind having to make `p' be the last option in any
bunch beginning with `-q', just remove the `+' on line 62 of _rpm.
