what happened to sqlite autocomplete?

Previously I could open an sqlite database from the command line using autocomplete for the database name. After typing (using autocomplete for sqlite(3)) I could type the first letter of the database name and use tab completion for the rest.

This no longer works. I tried updating sqlite and now tab completion allows me to browse through directories but still no autocompletion with db names.
It works with root. (I don't want to use the db's as root.)
I tried:
aptitude install bash-completion-lib bash-completion
echo '. /etc/bash_completion' >> ~/.bashrc
with no effect.

What happened?
