What version of emacs are you using (M-x emacs-version)?
On GNU Emacs 21.4.2 (powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll
bars) of 2007-05-16, I cannot reproduce the problem. 
However, on all recent Windows emacs versions, I have a similar 
problem of garbled completions, especially using completion multiple
times on paths with spaces.
