I can see clearly where it's coming from. Bash completion's  
definitions get sourced in .bash_profile, which is supposed to be read  
on an interactive login shell according to man bash. Logically, that's  
where it should be. Yet when I comment out the bash completion  
commands in .bash_profile, LatexIt operates as it should.
