I have had a problem with my Perl script when a file had a space in it. 
As newer versions of CVSNT escapes spaces in names with a backslash, one 
of my first operation is replacing '\ ' with '%20' in the string and 
after that, I can use the remaining spaces as delimiters. Before finally 
writing a string to the disk, I have to replace '%20' with a single 
normal space.

Maybe that helps for you too?
