shlex fails to parse

"\!echo \"it's fine\""


 "\!echo \"it\'s fine\""

correctly. ValueError("No closing quotation") is raised incorrectly.

This should probably be fixed at the same time as #1521950.

How do you reproduce this?  The strings seem to work fine with shlex.split().

@Georg: seems like your r55549 and r55550 fixed this, am I correct?

That particular commit can't be the reason, but some other must be.  Closing as wfm.
