Tab-Complete annoyance when directory name and file basename match and tab on '.'

    Hard to explain. Easy to repro:

    > mkdir foo
    > touch foo.c
    > dir foo.<tab>

    To me this should only complete the foo.c. It should not complete the directory foo.

    Of course this happens if 'foo' is a file. And there's a valid argement that 'foo.' and 'foo' are the same file.

    In fact I'm pretty sure that fact will cause this no not get 'fixed' although I can not imagine anyone who ever wanted or expected it to work this way ( type 4 characters and hit tab to complete a 3 character name ).

    That's normal Windows file matching behavior, not TCC.
