shell-forward-word and shell-backward-word not symmetric

Consider the string "word1 word2 word3 word4 word5" with point just
before "word3". In bash-4.1, shell-backword-word moves point to the
beginning of the string, but shell-forward-word just advances to the end
of word4. The two functions really should be symmetric --- either both
should break out of quoted strings, or neither should. The latter
behavior is probably better, and it's more consistent with Emacs.
