When I write in *shell* buffer the command to launch an elderly version of an Emacs application in Mac OS X to pass some arguments to it, I use file name completion. I have to do it in steps. I start with <SPC> that GNU Emacs does not complain when I later try file name completion and write then "/App" <TAB> that it becomes / Applications/. I add "Aqu" and <TAB>. The path name is now expanded to "/Applications/AquaEmacs" with a few choices which are shown in a *Completions* buffer upon next TAB press:

        Click <mouse-2> on a completion to select it.
        In this buffer, type RET to select the completion near point.
        Possible completions are:
        AquaEmacs-2a.app/       AquaEmacs-bundle.app/   AquaEmacs-pre3.app/
        AquaEmacs-zuvor.app/    AquaEmacs.app/  AquaEmacs\ 8.0-rc5.app/

I select the last item, i.e. "AquaEmacs\ 8.0-rc5.app/" so that the command line now shows "/Applications/AquaEmacs\ 8.0-rc5.app/". This directory has only one member: "Contents". So I hit <TAB> and see: "/ Applications/AquaEmacs 8.0-rc5.app/Contents/". Great! The auxiliary backslashes are removed from the previously ugly view. This directory has a few members. To make a choice I hit again <TAB>. In *shell* buffer nothing happens, a beep sounds, and a *Backtrace* buffer opens:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Opening directory" "no such file or directory" "/Users/pete/8.0-rc5.app/Contents/")
          file-name-completion("" "/Users/pete/8.0-rc5.app/Contents/")
          call-interactively(comint-dynamic-complete nil nil)

So it seems that the decision to remove the backslashes wasn't so clever ...
