That explains some of what's going on in this case, but not all.  For
the first tab, shouldn't the text filled in by completion be "qwe\:o"
instead of "qwe:o", since it includes a COMP_WORDBREAKS character?
That's how filename completion behaves, so I'd expect the same
behavior here.  Is the completion function responsible for adding the
backslash, or should bash do it?

Also, after two tabs, we have "qwe:qwe:o", but further tabs don't add
any more "qwe:"'s for some reason I don't understand.
