Yes. That solves the problem.

But I feel the completion is sluggish. I think this is due to the
subshell involved in $(). Is it? Is there a way to directly write the
output of compgen to COMPREPLY without invoking another process?

f() { COMPREPLY=($(compgen -c -X '!'"$3")); }

In fact, I have to abandon bash-completion due to its sluggishness. I
guess the problem is also due the problem of excessive use of
subshells or additional processes that we talked about before?
