I have added these two lines to my inputrc file:

Control-Tab: menu-complete
Tab: complete

What I would like to do is to have the "standard" completion when I hit the Tab key, and the "menu-complete" action (replacement of the word to be completed) when I hit C-Tab.

What happens is that both key combinations trigger a "complete" action.

If I invert the order of the two lines above, like this:

Control-Tab: menu-complete
Tab: complete

I get the opposite behavior: both key combinations will trigger "menu-complete".

Am I doing anything wrong, or is this a bug?
