Bug Description

Furius ISO Mount is unable to mount anything if the image name or the path to it contains apostrophe. In my case, I've tried "King's Bounty.mdf" which was in the "King's Bounty" directory.

The directory to serve as the mount point is created, but it's empty, and if you run "mount" in the terminal, you won't see the image in the list. Besides, Furius yields the next message:

/bin/sh: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string

(if you don't run it from the terminal, you can see the message in ~/.xsession-errors)

Once I've removed the apostrophe from both the directory name and the file name, the image was mounted normally.
