This is easily reproducible on any operating system. I've taken the
liberty of filing a bug report to get this fixed

I hope that our Windows users will report other such errors when a file
or directory name contains a space.


Spent a little time this afternoon looking a simple batch file constructs using ~s to get the 8.3 path form, but didn't hit on anything simple. Will try a bit more and move any other comments to the bug report.
