Is this a bug?

I apologize for bothering you with this question.

I have several directories on a system with > 300k files. When I use filename 
completion bash freezes for over a minute depending on the number of files. I'm 
pretty sure that bash has to read the directory to do the completion but the 
read appears to be uninterruptible. Is this a bug?

Again, I apologize for bothering you with this.

Best regards,
