Jean-Luc in cc to this e-mail spotted an issue with your MSVC installer
to do with readline path completion and paths with spaces. To observe
this issue try

cd c:
cd Doc<tab>

This will then complete the path with

cd Documents and Settings

and the error

error: Documents: no such file or directory

will occur. Has this issue been addressed? Is there a means of getting
the readline path completion to instead write that as

cd Documents\ and\ Settings

Should we concatenate the multiple arguments to "cd" above into a single
argument? If so what white space character and how many of them should
we assume are present? In any case do you have some idea how to address
