Description of problem:

Add device menu does not take spaces.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.3.3

How reproducible: very

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "add new printer"
2. Find new network printer on any host
3. Once found, try to add spaces to device path
Actual results:

Expected results:
// Printer

Additional info:
The printer share name has spaces in it. It is displayed incorrectly in the menu, as the textbox does not allow any spaces.
However, I was able to add a space to the Device URI in the printer properties menu.

AFAIK printer queue can't have spaces in the name. Exception is SAMBA shared printer where the spaces should be automatically replaced with '%20'.
Can you attach a screenshot of the dialog with the found printer ?
Also please update to 1.3.5 first. thanks
