With a default install of Mint, the bash shell tab completion is escaping the $ character. For instance, I have a directory /opt/foo and have exported FOO=/opt/foo. When I try to get to the directory using the command: cd $F then hit tab, I get the command: cd \$FOO
Can anyone tell me what to change in order to disable the escaping of the $ ? I know this is possible using bash, because neither my Gentoo nor my Fedora boxes do it.
Thanks in advance =)

would cd F do it?
bash is controlled by some hidden files in your home folder and files in /etc/bash_completion.d and /etc proper
I don't have the time to check in on that. The normal prompt is called PS1 in these files - perhaps you find it if you look around
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
