} 'cat 1<C>a/iota<TAB>' behaves (with the patch) as follows:
} - If this is the first tab and completeinword set: completes
} - If this is the first tab and completeinword unset: doesn't complete
} - If this is the second tab: completes
} I think that's fine because, in the 'this is the second tab and
} completeinword is unset' case, the _first_ tab was at the 'cat 1/i<C>'
} case, so logically the overall completion that's happening here _is_
} "completion at end of word", not in middle of word.
Upon consideration, I wonder if the following might not be preferable. I
think the behavior described above remains unchanged.
I'm still puzzled as to why the internals don't do this correctly; the
cursor is obviously at the expected position.
