Description Klaus Ethgen 2008-02-07 10:15:30 EST
Description of problem:
Having a source where the "developer" has spaces in dirs or files quilt will
silently fail adding or removing files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All, upstream known (#19477)

How reproducible:
Create a file with spaces in the name and try to edit them.

Actual results:
You can edit the file without problems but it will not be in the patch if you
use quilt refresh.

Expected results:
Expected is the expected result. Sorry, but this is really what is expected.

Additional info:
I identified the problem in 3 files. /usr/share/quilt/{add,push,remove}. The
problem has to be diverted in two subproblems.
1. Using "$@" instead of "$*" or even $*.
2. Correctly quoting of the file name in the subcalls in that files.
