bash & filenames with spaces

Bash won't allow me to cd to a directory with a space in it.  The FAQ
implies that all that is necessary is to escape the space, but whether
I type (e.g.):

cd /c/Program\ Files


cd '/c/Program Files'

I get a message:

cd: Program: No such file or directory

Am I missing something obvious here?
