Indeed, it seems that the pcomplete completion UI code was somehow
broken when its innards were separated to provide

The right fix moving forward (which I've been meaning to do but haven't
found time for yet) is to change Eshell to not use the `pcomplete'
command any more, but to use `completion-at-point' instead and to
finally obsolete the `pcomplete' command.
