Re: Darwin _defaults completion bug

Hi Ryan,

I think I've found a small bug with your _defaults completion (which I use all the time). If I type 'defaults read -g' then hit the Tab key, I see a list of possible completions which are quoted *and* escaped with a backslash.
...et cetera, et cetera. The command doesn't work in the escaped + quoted form. If just the quotes are used, the command works. I've looked at _defaults but haven't been able to figure out where the escapes are being inserted. If you get a chance, could you take a look?
Thanks! This occurred because the completion did not handle quoted key name "defaults read" prints. Here is a patch to remove quotes.
