Why? :)

Strange version number :)

I won't put a Replaces: bash, that's pretty weird.

Instead, I'm thinking about downgrading it, and not fixing it at all (and 
probably closing it)

$ rmadison bash
      bash |  3.1dfsg-8 |     etch-m68k | source, m68k
      bash |  3.1dfsg-8 |     oldstable | source, alpha, amd64, arm, [..]
      bash |      3.2-4 |        stable | source, alpha, amd64, arm, [..]
      bash |      4.0-7 |       testing | source, amd64, armel, hppa, [..]
      bash |      4.1-1 |      unstable | source, alpha, amd64, armel, [..]
$

The only version of bash having bash_completion is in oldstable.
I haven't received any similar bug report for all this time, maybe this 
happened to Kurt for some strange event?

Totally run out of ideas,
David
