My ~/.bashrc is a big one I've been carrying around for a while, but I
found the lines in question 

#if [ -f /etc/bash_completion ]; then
#    . /etc/bash_completion

in /etc/bash.bashrc and put them in my personal one.

Thanks for pointing that out.  This must have been set as a
system-wide default in dapper but not in edgy, right?
