Bash might have its priorities backwards:
$ which wwwoffle-chunks|xargs ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x    2 jidanni  jidanni      3324 10 24 08:19 
$ ls -ld wwwoffle-chunks 
drwxr-xr-x    2 jidanni  jidanni      4096 10 25 23:37 wwwoffle-chunks/
$ ww<TAB>
$ wwwoffle-chunks/

Tab completion, at item one [cursor leftmost on an [fresh, empty,
usually] command line] in the case where one has the same name on the
PATH and as a subdirectory in the current directory, would much more
helpfully complete as the command name instead of the subdirectory
[with appended / that must then be removed each time one wants to use
the command.]
