Ok, so when you type "sudo port" you leave the bash shell and enter  
the MacPorts shell, so we're talking about completion within the  
MacPorts shell, not the bash shell. So yes, we know that goes away  
when you selfupdate, and yes it should come back when you reinstall  
MacPorts from the dmg. So get the 1.7.1 dmg for your OS and install  
it on top of what you have now. Your ports will not be affected.
