Bug Description

Binary package hint: gksu

To reproduce the bug:

1) Install nautilus-gksu.
2) Restart nautilus.
3) Create a folder whose name contains an apostrophe, for example:

>mkdir /l'hiver

4) In Nautilus, click right on this folder and choose "Open as administrator".

Actual result: it's not possible to open the window, we have this error:

>Impossible de trouver « /lhiver ».
>Vérifiez l'orthographe et essayez à nouveau.

It seems that the apostrophe is removed from the path.
