mc not doing directory completion when using the tilde character.

Since the last version (or maybe the one before that), mc has stopped doing completion when using the tilde character for the home directory.

For example:

  1. In the command line below mc, type cd ~/
  2. Press Alt-Tab
  3. Nothing Happens!

Earlier it used to work fine.

Same happens when using ~ with mc's copy/move and probably other operations too.

$ mc --configure-options

'--prefix=/usr' '--sysconfdir=/etc' '--mandir=/usr/share/man' '--enable-background' '--enable-charset' '--enable-largefile' '--with-edit' '--with-gpm-mouse' '--with-mmap' '--enable-vfs-smb' '--with-screen=slang' '--with-subshell' '--with-vfs' '--with-x' '--without-debug' '--without-gnome' '--without-included-gettext' '--libexecdir=/usr/lib' 'CFLAGS=-march=i686 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2' 'LDFLAGS=-Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro'
