Description A. Miklas 2001-12-24 15:34:12 EST
Description of Problem:
This bug concerns ark, the kde archiver.  If a space is included in any part of 
the extraction path, ark will claim that the path is invalid and refuse to extract 
the archive to the given path.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.2 Release 2

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any archive in ark.
2. Choose a directory to extract to, such that there is a space at some point in 
the path.

Actual Results:
"Please provide a valid directory."
Putting quotes around the file also does not work.  This results in the error 
"Ark cannot extract a file to a remote location.  Please provide a local valid 

Expected Results:
Ark should extract an archive to any folder specified, regardless of whether 
the path to the folder contains a space.
