Autotest fails if filename contains spaces #132

If an expanded filename contains spaces (the project directory does, in my case), autotest fails to run specs since the filenames are not quoted in make_text_cmd.


(I chose to simply put single quotes around each filename, like the original autotest code does. Actually it might be even better to properly shell escape filenames)

Please add a spec that fails without this change and I'll be happy to merge it.


Sorry, I didn't realize that the autotest stuff is covered by specs. Here's a spec that ensures that paths are quoted in commands.
