it's closer to csh's than to bash.  ksh should default to letting ESC
ESC complete filenames.  on the ksh that came with my redhat 6.0
install, doing "set -o vi-esccomplete" does the trick.  there may be
better ways of doing it.  the ksh i fight with on hp-ux likes using
"esc esc" by default.

good luck,
