    readline completion problem when using symbolic links

Create the following directory tree:
   |-area ....
   |         :
   |         :
   |         :
   |-level1  :
      |      V
      |-level2a: 1,2,3
      |-level2b: a,b,c

 ... represent symbolic link

mkdir level1

mkdir level1/level2a
mkdir level1/level2b

touch level1/level2a/1
touch level1/level2a/2
touch level1/level2a/3

touch level1/level2b/a
touch level1/level2b/b
touch level1/level2b/c

ln -s level1/level2a area

Type: "ls area/../l"  and press tab.
If level1 is the autocompletion choice it is wrong.
The correct choices are level2a and level2b.

Thank you very much. And sorry in advance if this is not a real problem.
