Oh, GREAT.  Much to my surprise, it would appear that MikTeX messes
this up instead of cmd.exe.  It could possible start working with
MikTeX 2.5 (if somebody else complained about it), but then probably
the -output-format thing would be working, and "latex" would use
PDFeTeX, anyway, and there was no need of TeX-DVI-via-PDFTeX.

Well, it means that the spaces would not work with
TeX-DVI-via-PDFTeX.  No way I can see that work, short of
\def\jobname{"xxx uuu"}\input{\jobname}
And I don't really want that.
