I've just looked into it, and it seems that the bash-completions expect _argcomplete function to be declared -- yet it is nowhere to be found.

Supposedly you are supposed to use register-python-argcomplete to obtain the completions, i.e.:

  register-python-argcomplete > "${T}"/${PN}
  dobashcomp "${T}"/${PN}

(IOW, the bundled completion is useless, and you install it with wrong name)
