	I've duplicated your inputrc, your complete, and your options.

	However, I just saw this appear on debian-devel:

I think this is connected with the recent upgrade of libreadline4.
There is some discussion of it today on debian-devel.


	This leads me to suspect that you might have the same problem.
Can you test to see if it works in the console or not?  As well, can you
test to see if you've been getting double tabs in your terminal?  (Which
terminal are you using?  xterm?)  If you just type <TAB> at an empty
prompt, and you get "Display all 10000 possibilities? (y or n)" then
your terminal is passing tabs twice.
