[torqueusers] directory with spaces in the name

Be that as it may, we have now tested this on both a cp and scp setup 
and it doesn't work in either situation.

Or are we missing something here and do other people have this working 
(with possible an other Torque version)?

imho Torque should (want to) support this, path's with spaces in them 
have been around for a while now. Otherwise what's next, asking our 
users not to use capital letters, digits or regexp characters in their 
paths? I would like to believe *nix has surpassed that era.
