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):
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>
