comment git bash-completion on mac osx does not work following standard installation instructions
Changing terminal to run /opt/local/bin/bash resolved it. Can you tell me why this step is needed?

Yet better: the problem seems to go away if the current line is redrawn. Either C-l to clear screen and redraw current line or creating a key binding for the unbound function redraw-current-line.

A better solution than echo that I just found: Append a '#' to the beginning of the line rather than an echo. This way bash treats the whole line like a comment.

Thanks, I actually tried that just a little while ago. In my case I was careless and blew away a file because there was a pipe in the command that swallowed the echo. You are correct, this seems to only affect long commands according to my experimentation.
