Package: mc
Version: 2:4.6.2-2
Severity: normal


when I try to enter a directory containing spaces and use tab completion  
to insert its name, ie. I do

cd /mnt/c/Docu<TAB>

it completes to

cd /mnt/c/Documents\ and\ Settings

it fails when executed. If I delete the backslashes in the line, it works.
