I 've had the same exact problem trying to setup neomutt recently and I stumbled upon this post (which even after 7 years it remained relevant).
I did however found a better workaround:

macro index ga "<change-folder>?/[Gmail]/All Mail<enter><enter>"

The "<change-folder>?/" opens up the browser and begins searching, the "[Gmail]/All Mail" is the search query which can take spaces without issues and the "<enter><enter>" selects and enters the folder.
This macro doesn't rely on auto-completing and should be better to use.
