hi,

currently the bash function bash_directory_completion_hook()
performs command substitution (part of expand_string()) when attempting 
directory completion.
i dont think it is ok to execute any parts from the command line
before the user hits a key bound to accept-line  (usually "\C-j" or "\C-m").

Example:
try this as a privileged user to reboot your machine:

# xxx `reboot`/

position the cursor after '/' and hit TAB.
