Hello Matt,

Fun fact: The default readline completer uses file names.  If you change
it to something else you no longer get file names.  Since the example
code did that to get Scheme completions, you'd need to extend it to
handle file names.  I don't think I'll reimplement it in Scheme, but it
should nevertheless be a good exercise.

I'll try to reproduce the issue with Ubuntu 18.04 in a Docker container
or something.
