Restricted tab-completion is annoying

I totally forgot my other example until just a few minutes ago when I went to modify my apt sources list.

sudo -e /etc/apt/sour<TAB> gives me sudo -e /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ for no apparent reason.  It doesn't appear to be a permissions issue.
sudo vi /etc/apt/sour<TAB> gives me the correct result--sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list

Perhaps this is something I should file a bug report on?
