#11 Spaces in filenames not parsing.

I am running Pixie 1.2.6 on Windows 2000. I am trying to
render RIB files generated by the modeller Ayam, which
sometimes generates multiple files for complex scenes
that are read into one top-level RIB file. The full path
name to these files is used, which includes the directory
"C:/Documents and Settings/" Pixie appears to be unable
to parse these filename references because of the
spaces in them.

When I try to render these files, I get an error indicating
the line in the RIB file where the "ReadArchive" command
references the additional files. An example of an error
code is:
ST5deployed.rib (725): Unable to find "C:/Document(.rib)"

Scenes do render, but nothing from these additional files
is used. Editing the "ReadArchive" statements can fix this,
either by removing the directory references or changing
them to MS-DOS filenames (for example, "docum~1"
instead of "Documents and Settings").
