I can't reproduce it:

$ complete
$ complete -r
$ complete
$ cd /tmp
$ touch example
$ `/bin/false example ` 
bash: /bin/false: No such file or directory
$ echo example

In both cases, I typed TAB to complete `example' after typing up to the
`p'.  Both times, readline completed to `example' and appended a space.

There was a similar bug reported back in March in which the default
completion append character ended up being set to `/', but that doesn't
seem to be happening here.
