Stream completion

Jun 24, 2008
Siegen, Germany

Using file name completion on files with streams, I found the following inconsistency:

del xxyy.ext: <tab>
expands to:
del xxyy.ext:stream <enter>
will correctly delete the specified stream.


del "xx yy.ext": <tab>
expands to:
del "xx yy.ext:*"
not allowing me to delete (the only) stream available, stream.
Instead, I have to write out the stream name literally.

I can reproduce this behavior.
