Tab completion?

I may just never have tried this before, but ...
Before pressing <tab>

do d in /s /d"c:\prog
(cursor at end).

After pressing <tab>

c:\> "Documents and Settings"\ d in /s /d"c:\prog
(cursor after "...ings"\)
OK, thanks. But if it so completes c:\programdata (as desired) if removes the quotes needed by DO's "/D". No big deal.
It's behaved that way since LFNs first appeared. You could upgrade to the DWIM parser, or you could help out the parser and add the second ".
Yes, that works. AS often as I do it, it really doesn't matter.

But I still enjoy the enhancement to tab completion made a few versions ago ... that the thing you want to complete doesn't require a space before it.
%FUNCTION[bla<tab >
is very convenient.
So is the added space after completing the first word in a command line.
