Assorted remarks:

This still needs the 2>/dev/null fix I described in 16533.

If you *are* going to parse "ls -F" output, you should remove the comment
that indicates otherwise.

Another possible approach would be to use ls (without -d) on the directory
parent of the remote path, and let the completion system filter out the
non-matching names, rather than the rather crude hack I did of appending
a `*' to the path.  This would support complete-in-word a bit better, but
means more network traffic.
