On AIX it is ESC-ESC, check your system's man page for ksh

Or if you're using the vi builtin editor (set -o vi) instead of the
emacs, then it's ESC-\, that's escape backslash.

You can also use ESC-*.

Followup to my blunder, this is *not* an OS-dependent option, but rather
dependent upon if you have done a 'set -o vi' or 'set -o emacs'.

Filename completion is ESC-ESC in emacs-mode, but it is ESC-\ in vi-mode

Sorry about that...
