Question aptitude behaves strange


Code:
$ aptitude s
sbin/    selinux/ server/  srv/     sys/
This is what happens when I hit TAB. It always showed "show" and "search" actions before... Why directories now?

In my case it happen only when i login/su with root user.

Code:
shailesh@chat:~$ aptitude s
safe-upgrade  search        show
shailesh@chat:~$ su -
Password:
root@chat:~# aptitude s
script/         sent            snmpd.conf.bak
sem/            snmpd.conf
root@chat:~# aptitude s

The problem is fixed. I just needed to reboot. I think the reason for this thing to appear was my experiment with http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...7/#post4070778
I like experiments.

P. S. Speaking of which - in 2002 when I got my first computer, my uncle configured BIOS and set a password, 'cause he knew that I could break it.
