Subject: git git<tab> completes non-existent command `git gitk`
Date: Sat, 23 May 2020 15:25:13 -0700
Message-ID: <> (raw)

easiest to reproduce is with docker

FROM ubuntu:focal
RUN : \
    && apt-get update \
    && DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -y
--no-install-recommends \
        bash-completion \
        git \
    && apt-get clean \
    && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

$ docker run --rm -ti test bash
root@23e691ecc7ba:/# [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && . /etc/bash_completion
root@23e691ecc7ba:/# git gitk

(I typed git git<tab>)

$ git gitk
git: 'gitk' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.

this is a bit annoying because I have some aliases/commands for git-github-*

the git version I have is 2.25.1:

$ git --version
git version 2.25.1
