Error when opening or inserting file (with autocompletion)

  1. echo "Test file" >"/tmp/test file.txt"
  2. mc -e "/tmp/test file.txt"

now we see the file in editor widget

  1. F9, F, O -> File dialog
  2. type: /tmp/test
  3. press M-TAB twice

autocompletion fill the input field with /tmp/test\ file.txt

  1. press ENTER

there is no error message but, mcedit cannot open and read the file...

The problem is the shell escaped filename (test\ file.txt). If we rewrite it to "test file.txt" mcedit can open and read the file.
