Package: bash-completion
Version: 1:1.1-3
Severity: normal

I have a directory called "Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches"
if I try with "ls" or "mv" then <TAB> to obtain the file list inside,
it doesn't complete anything

~$ ls Pills\ \'n\'\ Thrills\ and\ Bellyaches/<TAB>

same result with the development version in 

it works with 
~$ compgen -f ls Pills\ \'n\'\ Thrills\ and\ Bellyaches/<TAB>

here's the output with 
~$ set -x
