bash completion quirk or bug?

Hi, I believe I've found a bug in BASH.

If I am in a directory via a SYMLINK, and I type ../otherdir<TAB> the completion puts a space at the end of otherdir instead of a slash ( / )

e.g.:
address@hidden mail]# bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05a.0(1)-release (i686-pc-linux-gnu)
Copyright 2001 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

address@hidden var]# ll mail
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           10 Jun  3 06:12 mail -> spool/mail

address@hidden var]# cd mail

address@hidden mail]# ll ../log <hit tab, got space not slash>

I don't know of any reason for it to do this, so I'm assuming it's a bug.

Thanks,
Barry Gould
