We certainly shouldn't ever depend on the setting of the glob_assign
option within the completion scripts, so this fix is a sensible thing to
do anyway and ought to deal with it.

What is actually triggering the error is a bit obscure,
though... nothing obviously relevant has changed.  I guess some new and
otherwise unproblematic assignment just picked up this alternative
