I did test a few more versions.
OC 8.2.7 is working.

OC 9.0.4, OC 9.0.5RC1, OC9.1.1RC1 are NOT working. So it fails for all OC9.0+.

If I use the core/js/sharedialogview.js from OC 8.2.7, it works in OC 9.1.1RC1!

@tflidd thanks for the info. Looks like sharedialogview.js from 8.2.7 uses the old API endpoint.
So this means the new API endpoint might have trouble with spaces.
