Given the following tree:

├── folder 1
│   └── file.txt
└── folder 2

(Note that "folder 1" and "folder 2" contain single spaces.)

In mc I enter "folder 1", select file.txt and press F5. Then in copy dialog I enter "../fol" and press Esc+Tab. mc suggests me "../folder\ ". Then I add "2" and press Enter. And the following error appears:

Cannot overwrite directory "../folder 2"

If in copy dialog I enter "../folder 2" (without screening \), everything is OK.

Moving dialog produces the same error.

Note, that in mc command line "cd" command works OK with screening \ before space.

Sounds like the reincarnation of bug #55, perhaps...

Actually, the same as #3008.
