Yes, I ran into the same problem with cvswebnt, and hum, I decided to never
use spaces in my filenames at all (not a bad idea). I understand this can be
a problem if you have already a lot of files with spaces.

By the way, cvswebnt has the same problem if your NT user name contains
spaces... Also fobidden in Unix world, but more common on Windows. As I
faced with that problem myself, I changed the following line  (near #1737
from v :

e:\s+(\S+);\s+(lines:\s+([0-9\s+-]+))?|) {


);\s+state:\s+(\S+);\s+(lines:\s+([0-9\s+-]+))?|) {

to allow the use of spaces is user names.
