Yes, you must have CDPATH as well as PATH matching between bash and
Emacs. That's because bash is doing the cd, but Emacs is doing the
completion. Emacs needs to track your cd commands so it can do
completion. So if you do:
/bar$ cd foo
but that actually results in:
Then Emacs will think you are in '/bar/foo', if it doesn't know CDPATH.
