Restores through elinks

I recently tried to restore a backup using elinks on the console (it’s a long story). It appears that this fails if the filename contains a space, which is the way my backups are saved/downloaded by default on my workstation.

To double check, I took a fresh install, and confirmed that I was unable to restore in elinks. I then opened the wui in Firefox on a remote system, and was able to restore the same file without any problems.

Is this a known problem? Can any one else confirm?

I’ll have to remember to save my backups without any spaces in the name. I realize this is probably an uncommon situation, but is it reasonable to default the backup names to not include spaces, or make it an option?

Thanks.
