Bug Description

[Impact]
Simple scan is unable to send email with PDF attachments.

[Test Case]
1. Open Simple Scan
2. Scan a document in text mode (the default)
3. Email the document

Expected result:
Email client opens with attached .pdf file

Observed result:
Nothing occurs. Running 'simple-scan -d' from the command line shows an error about trying to run the invalid command 'xdg-email--attach'.

[Regression Potential]
Low. Adds back in a missing space character that got dropped in some refactoring.

Original description:

This is my first bug report so I hope I'm making sense:

Simple scan doesn't send mail when trying to send a scanned document. Using simple-scan -d I get this error:

[+9.63s] WARNING: app-window.vala:1208: Unable to email document: Failed to execute child process “xdg-email--attach” (No such file or directory)

Looking through the code within app-window.vala on lines 1194 - 1196 I see:

            var command_line = "xdg-email";
            if (type == "pdf")
                command_line += "--attach %s".printf (file.get_path ());

I'm thinking there should be a space " " prior to --attach on line 1196.
