      well...I found an easier workaround than renaming all the files one at a time... heres the bash script for those interested...


      for FILE in *
              NEW=`echo "$FILE" | sed -e "s/-/ /g"`
              mv "$FILE" "$NEW"
              NEWFILE=`echo "$NEW" | sed -e "s/   / - /"`
              mv "$NEW" "$NEWFILE"

      I was just about to complain about that.  It's something new with the 2.3 version.  It didn't do that in 2.1 version so I've gone back to it.  Haven't tried the 2.2 version.

      I have this problem too, I can't get it to accept a space in the settings box.  The bash script above works, but there should be a way to make the program work.  I can't even see where the characters are added in the source.

      grep for 'isalnum' in misc_utils.c.  the problem is that it's being too hard on unix filenames.  another post somewhere on here mentions that.  i'm gonna kludge the current version until it gets fixed in the new one.
