Fixed In Version: file-roller-2.28.2-7.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: file-roller was not properly dealing with filenames containing spaces. Consequence: File or directory names with spaces were not properly recognized by file-roller, e.g when called through the 'Compress' menuitem in nautilus. Fix: Make file-roller use the correct API to handled file names. Result: file-roller can properly handle filenames with spaces now.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support
