Of course mc is not shell but there are completion and it's HORRIBLE broken
for files with spaces (I have a lot of files with spaces on my Window
Partition:-) :-(( For internal mc coummand you should use filename "as is"
without quotes or \ while for external command you should use quotes, etc...

Even if mc is not part of gnome (gmc is :-) it's still not good IMO ...
