Comment 3 for bug 197499

confirmed here with ubuntu 8.10 and nfs-kernel-server 1:1.1.2-4ubuntu1.1 and nfs-common 1:1.1.2-4ubuntu1.1

tried using an export point with a space, defined inside quotes or with backslash-040

both exportfs and nfs-kernel-server return "Warning: <export point> does not support NFS export."

when the export point is renamed to not contain a space, and /etc/exports is updated accordingly, the export point is exported successfully

actually, chad succinctly summed it up in the original report ;)
