Spaces in the Exec key of a desktop entry file (used for xsession specifications) should be treated as argument list delimiters, per the freedesktop.org spec[1]. However, the data/Xsession script provided by LXDM quotes the LXSESSION variable to prevent the spaces from being interpreted correctly.

I have attached a custom xsession desktop entry file which triggers the issue by attempting to start a dwmctl[2] session.
