Description of problem:
tsclient can't export connection to file with space or # in name. It can't import from file with space or # neither.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start tsclient from terminal (you will see runtime messages/commands)
2. import/export any connection to file with space or # in name
tsclient doesn't tell anything if he succeed or not, but in terminal you can see tar error messages
connection is imported/exported successfully without any error messages
it looks like bad integration with tar, maybe missing quotes in tar command
tar version: tar-1.23-3.el6.x86_64

Indeed, there are missing quotes...
g_string_append_printf (cmdline, "tar cfz %s --directory %s --remove-files ", absfile, export_dir);
cmdline = g_strdup_printf ("tar xfz %s -C %s", absfile, import_dir_path);
