Jason and Lennart,

Yes, I am running the CVS version of Emacs 23. Thanks to both of you for your help. I guess I'm old-fashioned, but not only do I prefer the space bar completion keybinding (maybe because I've been doing it so long), but having spaces in a file name seems somehow just plain wrong to me.

No doubt I'm turning into an old reactionary clinging to the past....

Eh, and I just realized that Beverley might be running the CVS version of Emacs 23. This info is just there for 22.1 (or are old news somewhere too?). Here are the relevant parts of the etc/NEWS file for the released Emacs 22.1:

There is etc/NEWS.22, but if you are going to quote the news entry, why did you leave out the most important bit?

   If you want the old behavior back, add these two key bindings to your
   ~/.emacs init file:

     (define-key minibuffer-local-filename-completion-map
               " " 'minibuffer-complete-word)
     (define-key minibuffer-local-must-match-filename-map
               " " 'minibuffer-complete-word)

Sorry. Thanks.
