Bug Description

indicator-virtualbox 1.1.1

I have a VM named Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" (not the quotes).
When clicking this item in indicator-virtualbox it doesn't start, I see the following output on a terminal:
VBoxManage: error: Could not find a registered machine named 'Debian 6.0 Squeeze'

FYI - I created a Python version (which hopefully handles VMs with " in the name): https://launchpad.net/~thebernmeister/+archive/indicator-virtual-box

Thanks Bernmeister, your python indicator-virtual-box supports quotes without problems!

FYI: I've moved all the indicators I've done (including indicator-lunar) under one PPA located at https://launchpad.net/~thebernmeister.

Sorry, should have been indicator-virtual-box rather than indicator-lunar in the above comment. Regardless, there's a bunch of indicators now under one PPA for simplicity.
