This is not a problem with bash, per se.  It is a problem with something
that is installing customized completions for `rm', probably the separate
bash-completion package.  You can see this by running

complete -r

and trying filename completion again.  I don't know what the problem is
yet, but I will see if I can reproduce it somewhere.
