14 There are a few bugs regarding this issue, for example: 472938, 476992 and
15 477214. If I understand things correctly, all installed modules are enabled,
16 but they're loaded "on-demand" (I guess this means the first time they're
17 used, but I'm not sure). The way suggested in one of these bugs to have a
18 working autocompletion is to source /usr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion
19 from you .bashrc file.
