You have more patience than me :-)

Just a guess, I wonder if "set +u" would have silenced those

I removed bash-completion (all of it, not just for nmh) from
my system (Fedora 16) because it disabled some completions
that I use frequently.  I don't think it's very useful for
nmh, anyway, because nmh options can be abbreviated.  It
should complete folder names, but didn't for me.
