ssh bash completion in Ubuntu

SSH bash completion doesn't currently work in 6.10. This is because hostnames are now stored as hashes in ~/.ssh/known_hosts. To disable storing hostnames as hashes and allow ssh hostname completion to work correctly you need to edit: /etc/ssh/ssh_config and change HashKnownHosts to No.

Thanks to Ubuntu forums for the answer.
