Filezilla fails when used from a path with spaces

I'm using Filezilla 3 on Mac OS X.

Filezilla refused to work for a long time - reporting 'fzsftp failed to start'.

(I checked that fzsftp was in the package and even set the environment variable that solved the problem for some users.)

Eventually I discovered that this was because I was running it from a path with spaces in it. (A drive called 'Second Drive'.)

Moving it to a path without spaces in it solved the problem.

*Damn*. Sorry - I thought I'd tested it on the latest version (it was still a problem on a *recent* version I assure you!). It is indeed working fine on the latest version.

My apologies (and thanks for a quick response).
