Description Armijn Hemel 2006-08-01 08:18:38 EDT
Description of problem:

GIMP doesn't handle spaces in files correctly. When I open an image, that has
spaces in its filename and then resave it, GIMP will replace it with %20. The
file ends up with %20 in its filename on disk. So, before it is written to disk
the %20 is not translated to a space.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. open an image, save it to a file with spaces in its name
2. reopen the image, save it again. All spaces in the name will be replaced by %20
Actual results:

filename changed, spaces were replaced by %20

Expected results:

I would have expected that the spaces would be left intact.

It seems to be a known bug in GIMP: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347544
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2006-08-02 10:47:20 EDT
gimp-2.2.12-3 which includes the upstream fix are building right now for Rawhide
and FC-5.
Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2006-08-04 13:47:15 EDT
gimp-2.2.12-3.fc5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.

Everything works ok now, so I guess this report can be closed.
