The current version still doesn't work, albeit it malfunctions differently:
root at axp[~]|2> touch "a b c"
root at axp[~]|3> touch "a c d"
root at axp[~]|4> a
a\ b\ c a\ c\ d
root at axp[~]|4> a\ b
... (long list snipped) ...
Apparently space is a delimiter for readline even when escaped with \.
Fix for this possibly won't be as easy...
