Bash Version: 4.4
Patch Level: 12
Release Status: release

Description:
        In the following example it auto-completes without putting double
quotes around "hi mom", which means a process would see it as 2
separate args instead of 1.
        $ complete -W "hi\ mom foo bar" ls
        $ ls h<tab>
        
        which results in the erroneous completion (no double quotes):
        $ ls hi mom

        For a semi-related discussion which led me to discover this bug:
        https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-74692
        and
        https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-74594

Repeat-By:
        See above.

Fix:
        After you press tab your pending command should look like this:
        $ ls "hi mom"
