>Package: mc
>Version: 4.6.0
>When I use <M-Tab> on a directory with name with spaces, it
>incorrectly completes the name without escaping the spaces.
>For example:
>mkdir "a b c"
>mkdir "a b c/d"
>cd a<M-Tab> will yield
>cd a b c/
>Pressing <M-Tab> again will not complete "d"
>Moreover, this has funny results when used as a shell command:
>mkdir "a "
>rm -rf a<M-Tab><Enter>
>will yield:
>rm -rf a /
Mh... I can't even create such a directory on my pc:

energy% mkdir "a b c/d"
mkdir: kann Verzeichnis „a b c/d“ nicht anlegen: Datei oder Verzeichnis 
nicht gefunden
energy% mkdir "a b c\/d"
mkdir: kann Verzeichnis „a b c\\/d“ nicht anlegen: Datei oder Verzeichnis 
nicht gefunden

But the last one: rm -rf a / is still silly...
