shell mode on windows XP

hi all,

i am using emacs 21.1 on windows XP.. and i have lots
of problems with the shell mode...

* i can't get filename completion to work correctly.
the default-directory variable doesn't change even if
i do a "cd" to another directory. so instead of giving
me the completions from current directory, it gives
the completions from the previous directory.

* whenever emacs does suggest completions, the
completion buffer just stays that even after i have
executed the command. this is very unlike other modes
where the completions buffer goes away once you have
completed the command.

* if there are spaces in the directory name (eg.
"Program Files") the command doesn't execute
properly.. eg.. if i write "cd c:/Prog" and hit TAB,
it gets completed to "cd c:/Program Files/" but if i
hit TAB again, i get a msg "No completions of Files/"
shouldn't emacs put "" around Program Files, just like
windows does.. or better still, start allowing spaces
in the directory name...

I am sorry if any of these (or all!) have been asked
before or are known issues... i haven't had the time
to check the faq.

M-x version output:

GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600) of 2001-10-22
on buffy

Thanks in advance!
