I see slashes getting added to directories in double quotes:

schaefer<505> ls        
a\ b  a\ d/  don't stop/  rmthat/
schaefer<506> ls "a<TAB><TAB>
schaefer<506> ls "a\\
Completing files
a\\ d/  a\\ b 

And then going on:

schaefer<506> ls "a\\ <TAB>
schaefer<506> ls "a\\ d/<TAB>
schaefer<506> ls "a\\ b"

One oddity is that typing the closing quote after `ls "a\\ d/' does not
auto-remove the slash, but I don't think that's strictly a bug.
