Incorrect behavior when parsing unmatched quotes

Description

The following command isn't really valid as it doesn't have an ending matched quote:

1 echo "foo bar\"

However the current behavior is a bit bad as it leaves a screwed up placeholder behind of _double_quote

Improve the parser to ignore missing ending quotes at the end of the command string. The above argument would parse into

1 foo bar"

since the ending quote is escaped and therefore not matched with the starting quote.
