Autocompletion issue in pacman

Hello
I use bash and have installed bash-completion. Bash's tab-completion works everywhere except pacman package names. When I write `sudo pacman -S teleg<tab>` does not complete telegram. Bash's version is 5.1.16.

Re: Autocompletion issue in pacman

Did you test the (autocompletion) behavior w/o sudo?

You can log the bash autocompletion:

script -B /tmp/bash.script -c "bash -x"
sudo pacman -S teleg<tab> # wait until the output stops
<ctrl+c>
exit

I tested just now. It works without sudo.

Look at it to see where things fall apart.
Or post it for public review.

Because of the sudo condition:

type sudo
