The toplevel :cd command differs from typical system shell usage in that quotes are required around the directory name. This can create quite a lot of stumbling for a new user, making the command seem broken. This could be alleviated by changing the :? HELP entry for the cd command to:

(:CD DIR) Change to directory DIR. Quotes are required, i.e. (:cd "..")
