Description Mathias Panzenböck 2009-10-25 04:02:08 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.2)
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs

When you call kdialog like this:
kdialog --getsavefilename '/home/panzi/tmp/Example "File" Name.txt'

and accept the proposed filename kdialog writes this to stdout:

Scripts using kdialog then save the wrong file, which can be anything from annoying to dangerous (overwriting the wrong file).
