Thanks, this was very useful.  It turns out to reproduce one must do
this at the shell's prompt, after "M-x shell":

  $ cd /some/directory/;

The /some/directory/ part should be a real directory.  Once one types
the semi-colon, Emacs hangs.  Here's the Lisp backtrace:

  "Automatic GC" (0x0)
  "looking-at" (0x766f5fc8)
  "shell--parse-pcomplete-arguments" (0x766f64f8)
  "pcomplete-parse-arguments" (0x766f6a90)
  "pcomplete-completions" (0x766f6f60)
  "pcomplete-completions-at-point" (0x766f7698)
  "run-hook-with-args-until-success" (0x766f7690)
  "comint-completion-at-point" (0x766f7b10)
  0x317f7b0 PVEC_COMPILED
  "completion-in-region--postch" (0x766f8450)

So I think shell--parse-pcomplete-arguments infloops in this case.
