When I start emacs with "-Q", the problem appears to go away.  If the
subdir "FooBar" is partially spelled, the completion will _not_ happen
unless the leading "F" is upper case. In no case does the shell care
if there is a leading "./" or not.

Example:
tnsfc7:~
> cd boojum/foo<tab><enter>
bash: cd: boojum/foo: No such file or directory
tnsfc7:~
> cd ./boojum/foo<tab><enter>
bash: cd: ./boojum/foo: No such file or directory
tnsfc7:~
> cd boojum/Foo<tab><enter>
tnsfc7:~/boojum/FooBar

tnsfc7:~
> cd ./boojum/Foo<tab><enter>
tnsfc7:~/boojum/FooBar
