It seems that under matlab, this completion (with the '/', '~', and '../' 
understanding) is activated when the command 'cd' is present in the beginning 
of the line. It's a kind of selective autocompletion (like in the last 
version of bash) which depends on the command used.
This could be way to deal with this possible ambiguous definition of '/' ?
There is nos sense to imagine a division after the cd command (at least until 
the next ';' if there are several command on the same line)
