Hello Bart

I am afraid, your patch doesn't work for me.

Fetched zsh 5.0.4, built it on MacOS X 10.9.1.
When I hit the tab, the shell immediately exits.

It happens when it type

     cd /usr/lo<TAB>

as well as

     ls /tmp/g<TAB>

Applying your patch - using _cd from a fresh git checkout - hasn't fixed it.
The problem is not a space in a path, but in the handling of tab characters.

I have been using the same zsh key-bindings for years on various OS
without incurring this problem.

Reverted back to 5.0.2, where the tab character works as expected.
