  Oh. I thought the feature was :
  /a/b/c is replaced by /at/ba/ca if such a directory exists (done by
  replacing `/' by `*/'), and that's a neat thing.

  but I didn't expect :
  - The stars to appear in the field ; but the field processed like if they
    were here,
  - The stars to be repeated (/a/b/c -> /a*/b*/c* -> /a**/b**/c**)
  - An error message instead of a `[No match]' :
    I don't see why /tmp/this-file-doesnt-exist <TAB> triggers [No match]
    and /a/b/c an error that can raise up the debugger on debug-on-error.

  Is it _really_ the expected behavior ?
