Description of problem:
Bash tab completion now inserts spaces after tab completing the name of a
directory rather than inserting a / and allowing for the completion of the next
portion of the path.  This makes it harder to use tab completion for completion
of long path names.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pick a directory under the current.
2. Type `vi <c><tab>' where <c> is some number of characters which can specifiy
the directory uniquely within the list of directories under the current, and
<tab> is a real TAB character.

Actual Results:  Bash turns the command line into the following:

$ vi <directory name><space><cursor>

Expected Results:  $ vi <directory name>/<cursor>
