I've tested this extensively and it works fine.
And we had multiple complaints about this during last week.

Please test yourself by launching a telnet interface and
typing some of your favourite quoting stuff into vlm.

It accepts all the formats below:

- backslashing of sensitive characters:

Let\'s\ test

- double quoting (with proper ignoring of single quote inside)

"Let's test"

- masking of inner qoutes


-strings with different inner quotes


- partially quoted strings

file="test 2"

- and last but not least, windows style paths:


Putting workarounds into wx will not solve the problem for VLM itself
(i.e. scipts, telenet intf, nor for HTTP intf).
And synchronization of quoting stuff with the shell is IMHO to the benefit
of all users.
