Hi GNU coreutils,

Today I just tried "cd ~<tabspace>" .
After entering this in the terminal it became unable to delete the ~ symbol

commands. Using a 2.6 Kinux kernel (RH 4)

This is not an issue with GNU coreutils; shell tab-completion is the responsibility of the shell, but you don't say which shell you're using so it's difficult to suggest an alternative mailing list / help forum.


Perhaps try waiting a minute for the requested username completion. I suspect the shell is blocking while performing a network lookup for all valid usernames on your system.
