Status in “bash-completion” package in Ubuntu: Fix Released
Status in “bash-completion” source package in Karmic: Confirmed

Bug description:
Binary package hint: bash-completion

"scp /tmp/somefile host.doma<Tab>" finds host.domain.com in my known hosts file, and I have an unlocked ssh key for that host in my keyring...

"scp /tmp/somefile host.domain.com:/tmp/<Tab>" starts completing files/dirs from /tmp/ on my local machine, not the remote one.

This worked correctly in Jaunty.
