I think it's the other way 'round. 

The *OP* needs to share one piece of info we're all missing, which is how
he got bash *not* to do "that".. 

I've used bash for some time and whatever the release of bash .. distro
.. type of terminal .. I don't remember ever having to do anything to
get this to work..  always worked out of the box..

Is the OP a new user of bash .. is this debian.. sarge .. etch .. a
debian-derived distro  .. ubuntu .. is this a new install .. did he
upgrade his system .. did he upgrade anything that might impact bash /
readline .. is this a local setup or does this happen over an ssh
connection to another box..  what terminal emulator .. xterm .. linux
console .. is the tab key broken .. has he been trying to remap his
keyboard lately ..??


A bit more info about the context might help narrow it down.
