Tab expansion dark corners

In some situations, bash [2.04 at least] doesn't know to expand a
command name:
$ < file command_name
hitting TAB while filling in command name will get filename expansion
instead.  If bash expansion knows that command names come after |
characters, it could also count to the second word past "<" and expand
as a command name.

Bash also has problems seeing the one filename that started with "="
$ ls =[TAB]
Display all 232 possibilities? (y or n)
$ ls ./=[TAB]
Display all 232 possibilities? (y or n)
one needs
$ ls \=[TAB] etc.

Hope I'm helpful with my bug messages.
