Thanks, but I don't understand how any of those examples constitutes
a "pilot error" or an empty word.

In #1, "~~~" is a complete word; completion changed it to "~~~~~~" which
is also a complete word but wasn't a candidate completion.

In #2 and #3, the input is a prefix of a valid command line («g
$'\'foo\''» and «h "$'foo'"» respectively).  #2 does not involve an
empty word; the word there is «'» (a single-byte word).

Thanks again for the explanation.  I'd like to understand what the
expected behaviour here is.  They triggered DPUTS calls so I assumed
they were bugs.


(#2 doesn't call compadd, but behaves the same if a call to _nothing is
added to _g.)
