npm link - Scoped Packages Autocompletion not working

What I Wanted to Do

I have my own scoped packages linked, but whenever I want to link them on a project the “npm link” autocompletion doesn’t recognize them, it only autocompletes the scope name.

Example of package.json

Linking those packages will generate a folder called @my-scope with two symbolic links called “first-module” and “second-module”, which is right.

What Happened Instead

When we try to link them locally “npm link @my-sc” autocompletion here will type "npm link @my-scope " instead of “npm link @my-scope/”.

If we manually type “npm link @my-scope/” autocompletion won’t find anything.
