As far as I remember, that used to work a number of revisions ago.
Now, the completion after the quote isn't being done properly.  For
example, if I type fun('/home<tab><tab> I see

In [1]: fun('/home/'
Display all 192 possibilities? (y or n)

but if I type fun('/home/<tab>

In [1]: fun('/home/stefan/'

Maybe someone else on a linux machine can try this example and report
on what they see -- could be that my setup that is broken.
