"Wrong number of arguments" when trying to compare files in Meld with spaces in names

Bug #341996 reported by Endolith on 2009-03-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I am not sure if this is Gnome Do's fault, the plug-in's fault, or Meld's fault, but I cannot compare files with spaces in the names. It treats each piece of a file name as an argument.

Please with every bug report you file for the rest of life, give some basic
information like: distro, mono version, do version, files & folders plugin

There should be a way to include that information automatically.

Ubuntu 8.10

GNOME Do Release
Files and Folders v1.4 (though it does not mention "Compare" in the description for this plug-in)

Hm. Sounds like we're passing unquoted strings, which might be messing
with meld. Perhaps just escaping each string with ""s would help?

I'm assuming that's the problem, yes. I don't know which piece of software is responsible for this, though.
