get the filename programatically, eg via scrollist/playlist external, miXed/folderglider, readdir: as long as its in memory, the space is fine (as soon as the message is reinterpreted, it wil end up as a list with N elements where N is the number of spaces + 1.). putting a \ before the space should help it retain the space, but im pretty sure you can't type this character so you could try editing the patch with a text editor. 

sorry if this advice is obsolete, but i doubt anything has changed since i switched to a platform that can't run PD 2 years ago... :D
