/etc/bash_completion.d/dlocate-completion is in dlocate, not bash_completion.

 Also, dlocate should use dh_bash-completion when building itself, so the completions will go in the new spot: /usr/share/bash-completion/completions


Anyway, back to this bug. yeah, might not be a bad idea to have the default completion be _filedir, rather than options. It currently only completes paths as arguments to -S.

 Also, the completions shouldn't list both -V and --version. Only list the long-option. rationale in /usr/share/doc/bash-completion/README.gz near the end.
