Default What up with this weird tab completion in Ubuntu??

Hello All,

I am on Ubuntu 11.04. I have noticed this weird tab completion
behavior at the terminals.
For example:

'$ ls ~/Docum<TAB>'

would give:
'$ ls ~/Documents/'

which would allow me to type a few more characters and press TAB again
for further completion.

'$ ls ~/Docum<TAB>'

'$ ls ~/Documents '

Note the irritating space after the directory name completion above.

How do I get back the previous behavior?

Thanks in advance.
