That was no problem in version 20, which I am still
running.  E.g., if I type "c:/Prog ", it completes out
to "c:/Program".  If I then type another space, that
just echoes, as there is a directory name with a space
there.  If I then type yet another space, it completes
out to "c:/Program Files/".  This seems to be a
natural and friendly way for it to behave.  Since it
did so in earlier versions and apparently does no
longer, I would venture that it is now broken.
