Hi there,

in my Kubuntu 6.10 AMD64 aptitude and bash completion work fine together.

piero at acaro:~$ aptitude [TAB][TAB]
autoclean       dist-upgrade    forget-new      markauto        remove          
unhold          upgrade
changelog       download        hold            purge           search          
clean           forbid-version  install         reinstall       show            
piero at acaro:~$ aptitude
