Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: nautilus-cd-burner

Using Serpentine, which uses nautilus-cd-burner (see bug #79436 in
Serpentine package), if I add a file named, for example (quotes for
clarity) "03. Salsa.wav" to the main window, nautilus-cd-burner ends
using that name (without the quotes) when calling cdrecord, actually
"breaking" the command line.

Example of real life:

mirta at selene:~$ serpentine --debug
launching command: cdrecord fs=16m dev=/dev/hdc -eject driveropts=burnfree -v -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpAhl1nw.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpGR3NXF.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/music/03. Salsa.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpLVZAYK.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpBlpZrl.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpzlfGT8.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpU86ZnR.wav .......

That leads to cdrecord giving a cryptic message of error (No such file
or directory. Cannot open ''.).

If I call cdrecord with the same as before but that problematic filename
quoted, like the following sentence, everything goes ok:

cdrecord fs=16m dev=/dev/hdc -eject driveropts=burnfree -v -copy -audio
-pad /home/mirta/tmpAhl1nw.wav -copy -audio -pad
/home/mirta/tmpGR3NXF.wav -copy -audio -pad "/home/mirta/music/03.
Salsa.wav" -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpLVZAYK.wav -copy -audio -pad
/home/mirta/tmpBlpZrl.wav -copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpzlfGT8.wav
-copy -audio -pad /home/mirta/tmpU86ZnR.wav .......
