On w32 `copy-file' that uses ftp to copy a local file to a remote location fails if the local file name contains spaces.

This is a bug I believe, but what should be done to solve it? The file name is sent to the ftp prompt like this

  ftp> put  c:/Program Files/some-file.html  /htdocs/somedir/some-file.html

So it is quoting to the ftp program that is required.

I suppose this problem is not w32 specific, but it is a little bit more complicated on w32, since different ftp program might use different quotings. I could test of course, but I hope someone knows a bit more about it. It looks like the unix style quoting works for the program mentioned here:
