Start DOSBox and look at any directory listing. Noting
the order listed, any attempt to use the TAB key for
command line completion will result in matching file
names being cycled through in the exact reverse order
of the directory entries.

    Really ? they seems good to me.
    Anyway: EXE BAT COM files are always displayed first. Then
    the rest.

    I've tested this on two separate machines - both XP Pro
    SP1. I mount a directory full of .exe files, A???.EXE through
    Z???.EXE. When I press TAB, the first one that comes up is
    the last one that starts with Z, and it cycles backwards to
    eventually get to the As.

    Fixed it. Thank you for reporting it.
