Here is how to reproduce the behavior:
* start Octave
* navigate to a folder, that has a SUBfolder with a space in the folder name,
e.g. a subfolder "my dataset"
* type "cd my" into the command line and press the tab key for auto
* the auto-completed result in the command line will be "cd 'my dataset\".
Note that the quote sign at the end is missing.
* pressing the enter key now, will obviously result in an error message

So the auto completion of folder names does not work properly.

Note that the auto completion of FILE names does work properly. (This error on
folder names might be due to the trailing backslash that is appended to folder

This happens on Linux and Windows. It happens with Octave-4.0.1-rc3 as well as
with the 4.0.0 release.
