Description of problem:

On a Windows disk image:

><fs> ls /Program<tab>
/Program Files  /ProgramData

but entering <space><tab> or \<space><tab> or trying to put
quotes around the argument doesn't work.

In addition:

><fs> ls "/Program Files/<tab>

doesn't show any files to complete.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

major: 1
minor: 0
release: 79

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount up a Windows guest (possibly any filesystem which
   contains spaces)
2. Try to tab-complete filenames that have spaces
Actual results:

Doesn't tab complete correctly.

Expected results:
