Really? It works fine for me.
ben at Tyr:~$ cd /usr/src/linux/Documentation/ABI/removed/
I got to the above by typing 'cd /u<tab>sr<tab>l<tab>D<tab>A<tab>r<tab>' -
and all of the above are directories.
If the console beeps at you when you hit the tab, you may have more than
one entry that matches what you've entered so far. Hit 'tab' again to
see the options and resolve them by adding a character.
