[PATCH] Fix wildcard match in Fish shell completion script

Trying to tab-complete the pass command in the Fish shell, when there
are no passwords stored, will result in a big error message being
printed on the console which reports the fact that nothing matches the
wildcard expansion.

Setting the result of the wildcard expansion to a variable first and
then trying to use the variable suppresses the error.
