        [Detailed description of the problem, suggestion, or complaint.]

On an i686 running Red Hat Linux 7.0 bash cannot recognize
filenames or directories that have spaces, unless I am root/su.
This does not happen in ksh, zsh, or tcsh, so it looks like a bug 
in bash.

        [Describe the sequence of events that causes the problem
        to occur.]

$ mkdir "Foo Bar"
$ cd Foo\ Bar/
bash: cd: Foo: No such file or directory
$ su        
# cd Foo\ Bar/
/home/oleg/tmp/Foo Bar

        [Description of how to fix the problem.  If you don't know a
        fix for the problem, don't include this section.]
