[Bug 440883] New: Banshee cannot handle command line with paths containing spaces

Summary: Banshee cannot handle command line with paths containing
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Beta 3
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Banshee

It looks as if Banshee has trouble with paths passed via the command line that
contain spaces.

How to reproduce:
1) Take an audio file and make two copies of it, naming the first "music.flac"
and the second "music 1.flac" (use an appropriate extension depending on the
type of the audio file).
2) Open a command shell in the directory containing these two audio files.
3) Execute "banshee-1 ./music.flac".
4) The file should open in Banshee. (This actually doesn't work every time, but
that is probably another bug.)
5) Clear the playlist and quit Banshee.
6) Execute "banshee-1 ./music\ 1.flac".

Expected result: Banshee should start playing "music 1.flac".
Actual result: Banshee starts but isn't playing "music 1.flac".

You can vary the sequence by placing the audio files in two directories, one
called "banshee" and one called "banshee test directory":
"banshee-1 banshee/music.flac" works,
"banshee-1 banshee\ test\ directory/music.flac" does not.

The behavior can also be seen in Dolphin (KDE 4.1). However, Gnome's Nautilus
seems to handle it better.
