PCmanFM replaces " " (space) with "%20" when cutting and pasting files on SMB shares

Bug #1325270 reported by Jens on 2014-05-31

pcmanfm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Running Lubuntu 14.04.

To reproduce:

Mount some SMB share (in my case, a WD Mybooklive Linux based NAS).
Select some files with spaces in their names, press CTRL+X (to cut these).
Navigate to some other folder on this share.
Press CTRL-V.

The files will be pasted there but their names will be mangled (space replaced with "%20").

This replacement should not happen.

This also happens when copying FROM a SMB share to e.g. a MTP device. These seem quite common operations and spaces in file names are quite common too. Is nobody interested in this bug? Or is more information needed?

Upstream reports this is fixed in libfm-1.2.1. Since this is quite a serious bug (affects daily usage), could an update for Trusty be considered?
