There has been some change to eselect and bashcomp according to the current portage tree and according to some forum threads.

However, I have anotherr issue, not mentioned yet:

AFAIK, previously something like
Code:
ls *abc* + TAB
listed every file with abc in it. This does not seem to work anymore.

At least, I do not find any reasonable module in
Code:
eselect bashcomp list
to reenable it.

Does this work for you?

that isn't a bashcomp function,

have a look if /etc/inputrc has changed

Thanks for pointing to /etc/initrc. I have never touched it and I do not have any ~/.inputrc. AFAIK /etc/initrc belongs to the baselayout package but there is no other version than 2.2 in portage.

I can now describe the issue more precisely.
Code:
ls a +TAB
lists all files beginning with a. However
Code:
ls a* +TAB
so with an asterisk, shows nothing, although it should display a lot of files.

It seems that 'filename completion' does not work anymore with asterisks... :-(

The only basic thing I have changed recently is switching to systemd.

Ok, solved by:

* uninstalling gentoo-bashcomp
* uninstalling bash-completion
* updating eselect
