After launching GNU Emacs with -Q and creating a *shell* buffer (with tcsh 6.12.00 (Astron) 2002-07-23 (powerpc-apple-darwin) options 8b,nls,dl,al,kan,sm,rh,color,dspm,filec) I can't expand the absolute path of GNU Emacs. It does not work when I start typing /us<TAB> nor does it work when I insert a <SPC> before the /us start of the path name. (When I type <RET> to get rid of everything typed tcsh asks me whether /usr is OK, autocorrect and 'correct = all' are set). It also fails with relative paths.

It works (with absolute and relative paths) when I start the command with another word (some command or alias). When I then type <TAB> to complete, a *Completions* buffer is created showing me case- insensitive completions. When I now select with the mouse a candidate, part of what I had typed before is deleted. To start with my example:

        I had written 'l /us' and then pressed <TAB>
I selected with mouse-2 from the two presented completions 'Users/' and 'usr/' the latter
        command line now showed: <prompt> usr/

I can undo and start again. I can start in a new *shell* buffer to type /us <TAB> <TAB>, which leads to nothing, and then change to: C-a l <SPC> C-e <TAB> and completion works suddenly ('l' is an alias for ls, but I could also insert 'a' or 'I' which are neither commands nor aliases nor shell functions in Bourne shell alikes). The deletion also happens with file names, for example with 'l .emacs <TAB> mouse-2'.

The presence of a ~/.emacs_tcsh file place no role. The type of shell plays no role, i.e. I can reproduce this in a bash (2.05b.0(1)- release or 3.2.9(1)-release) I start inside tcsh.

This behaviour started weeks, or months, ago. I then thought it was due to adding 'correct = all', but *shell* in GNU Emacs 22.2 does not show the same ... and the tcsh setting plays no role!
