bad filename parsing in run-scheme

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,

not to your local site managers!

Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have

translators to read other languages for them.


Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,

and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.


In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600)

 of 2001-10-22 on buffy

configured using `configure --with-msvc (12.00)'

Important settings:

  value of $LC_ALL: nil

  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil

  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil

  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil

  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil

  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil

  value of $LC_TIME: nil

  value of $LANG: ENU

  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1

  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t


Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug

and the precise symptoms of the bug:


When run-scheme is called, the function scheme-args-to-list is called

on the scheme-program-name.  Unfortunately, this function triggers on

spaces, so we get the following behavior:


 (scheme-args-to-list "c:/program files/plt/mzscheme") -->

     ("c:/program" "files/plt/mzscheme")


run-scheme then complains that it can't find a program named

"C:/program".  One work-around is to use the short name found by

typing dir/x to a dos window, but maybe there's a better way?
