On my machine, it seems like it needs to know a bit about the path before it will auto-complete. For example, typing "/L<tab>" does nothing, but "/Library/W<tab>" auto-completes "Webserver", and then "D<tab>" gets me "Documents".

Try it with a "~/Do<tab>", and you should get your Documents folder...or "~/De<tab>" gets me the Desktop...

you might wanna check out 'bindkey' command on your terminal.
i think you can just do 'bindkey' or output it to a text file to see what's what....

when I first got mac osx, tab was complete word, now, it's ctrl-l... I'm not sure what changed it... now tab seems to do 'ls'...

I havne't tried this in Finder yet... but I think I'm talking about the right stuff...
