FAR 3.0 b4691 x64 - changed quotation of paths with spaces using Ctrl+[]

Hello,
sometime after build 4685 quotation of paths with spaces was changed. Keyboard shortcut Ctrl+[ and Ctrl+] will insert into command line quoted path, but last backslash character is not inside quotes:
  • Path in panel is:

    Code: Select all

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Photo Viewer\
  • Above mentioned keyboard shortcuts insert into command line this text (note the trailing backslash after closing quote)

    Code: Select all

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Photo Viewer"\
When I use this path in Microsoft programs (e.g. Office open dialogs) - it is not recognized as a valid path name, backlash must be inside quotation marks. :(

Please bring back old behavior, see PowerSheell TAB autocomplete functionality which also inserts last backlash inside quotation marks.

Just use ShiftAltIns and the like to copy paths for other programs. The shortcuts you ask about are primarily for composing a command within FAR.

You can use Ctrl-F and Ctrl-; shortcuts to insert active/passive path without trailing backslash.

Just tried build 4949 and it is still wrong. Any plans to fix it?
