No

Steps to reproduce:
Create a directory that has a space character in the name such as "~/mira bin"
Place the mira executable in that directory
Add the directory to PATH so that running the command mira will run that executable
Try to run mira on some test manifest.txt file.

Expected result: The test case works
Actual result: An error message "Failure, wrapped MIRA process aborted"

The error message comes from mod_mira.C where miraMain_launchWrapped attempts to run the mira executable in a shell command line without allowing for the possibility of spaces or other special characters in the full path to the executable.
