Given a better description of what you're trying to do, I see that the bash's behavior has changed. I also learned about "Alt+g" and "Ctrl+x g". Those seem to do more or less what you want. These are documented in the bash man page under Completing/Miscellaneous, as glob-complete-word and glob-list-expansions.
