Marius problem is not a space in a symbol in Pd land, but a space,
created by [image] internally, which isn't escaped propely. To
reproduce the bug try this:
$ mkdir "/tmp/space channel 5"
$ cp ulala.gif "/tmp/space channel 5"
$ cd "/tmp/space channel 5"
$ pd &
and try to create an object [image ulala.gif]. This won't create!
But if you do a
$ mv "/tmp/space channel 5" /tmp/rez
and try the same thing again inside "/tmp/rez", [image ulala.gif] will
create just fine.
