I suppose it could be argued that this isn't all that important since
filenames like this are rare.  Even so, I think it should be fixed,
since there really isn't any good reason not to.  Also typing in the
filenames is not the only problem, this also breaks auto-competition. 
AFAIK, this is the last auto-completion bug.

The user should *definitely* not have to type in an escaped string.

I suppose that wouldn't be a problem.

Unless this really does cause a problem with cutting and pasting
filenames...  I don't know if it does, but if it's OK with you I think
we should implement 1) (except we can continue stripping off leading
whitespace) and then we can do more if this comment is there for a valid
reason.  Sound good?
