The definition of eshell-cmpl-load-hook includes eshell-cmpl-initialize,
which is ignored if user has something like:

  (add-hook 'eshell-cmpl-load-hook ...) in their .emacs.

And without eshell-cmpl-initialize, TAB in eshell inserts the TAB char
instead of completing commands, rendering the shell broken.

I think this is a bug. If eshell-cmpl-initialize must be called, please
move it to the right place. It seems to me it is unsafe putting it in

BTW, although I've found eshell very powerful and used it daily, sadly
it is also buggy. I have learnt to ignore most of them. For example,
sometimes when I hit TAB the eshell buffer suddenly disappears and the
completion window is shown instead. Sometimes when I use mouse to scroll
down the completion window brought up by eshell, it disappears too.

(There are some 20-odd defcustoms of hooks with non-nil default values
elsewhere in the Emacs sources. I haven't checked them yet; some may be
dumped or autoloaded.)
