bash-3.0 bug in tab-completion

bash-3.0 patchlevel 13 on Fedora Core rawhide (bash-3.0-9):

$ mkdir /tmp/arena
$ cd /tmp/arena
$ touch $(echo -ne '\1\$')
$ rm ./[TAB]

results in:

$ rm ./^A^A\\\$
rm: cannot remove `./\001\001\\$': No such file or directory

This seems to be due to this code fragment in sh_backslash_quote():

  case CTLESC: case CTLNUL:               /* internal quoting characters */
    *r++ = CTLESC;                        /* could be '\\'? */
    *r++ = c;
