The workaround is simple. Edit the file ~/.config/autostart/nice.desktop
directly (the file might be called different when viewed with nautilus,
like "No name").
Now everything is like normal and next lines with both work:
sh "/home/jdo/Scripts and Settings/Bash Scripts/startup.sh"
sh /home/jdo/Scripts\ and\ Settings/Bash\ Scripts/startup.sh
But I have to remember not to press the 'edit'-button on that line in
the 'start program'-tab of the gnome-session-properties. The gnome-
session-properties do indeed translate the text: all double and single
quotes and backslashes are removed. And that is the problem.
