I apologize if this is old hat (I could not find it in the FAQ), but I encounter the annoying problem that if I use path completion starting with my home directory, i.e.,


then bash puts a space after each directory name, i.e., if there was a directory called 'calcs' below 'cfd', bash would put


where the '_' denotes an empty space. This is annoying because I have to backspace several times when I work through deep directory hierarchies.

If I put the complete path to my home directory, i.e.,


then this does not happen. Any explanations/ideas/fixes/etc?
