Subject: [PATCH] completion: bash: improve alias loop detection
Date: Thu, 12 Nov 2020 16:34:52 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20201112223452.1526315-1-felipe.contreras@gmail.com> (raw)

It is possible for the name of an alias to end with the name of another
alias, in which case the code will incorrectly detect a loop.

We can fix that by adding an extra space between words.
