Bug Description

PCManFM 1.2.0:

F4 or Tools -> "Open Current Folder in Terminal" normally opens a Terminal in the current folder.

Currently this won't work if the foldername contains spaces: no terminal is opened

I think this could be a "correct escaping" problem.

What I expected to happen: F4 also work in folders with spaces, a Terminal should be opened.

The faulty lxsession-default-terminal is some sort of script which handles foldernames with spaces incorrect:

echo "Launching terminal manager"
dbus-send --session --print-reply --dest="org.lxde.SessionManager" /org/lxde/SessionManager org.lxde.SessionManager.SessionLaunch string:"terminal_manager" string:$PWD> /dev/null 2>&1

--> The real bug is the missing escaping around $PWD
Updating this file to ..."$PWD"... solved the Problem.
