Tested with default and 'osxapp-enabled' 0.48+devel r10057 on OS X 10.5.8 (i386): no regressions found so far.
All previously tested external applications (gimp, mtpaint, mypaint, display, open (using Preview.app, Pixen.app, Paintbrush.app)) can open and edit files with spaces or umlauts in the file name.
