Has anybody else been faced with a problem re. the automatic conversion 
from EPS to PDF when a file is dragged onto the TeXShop icon, for 
TeXShop 1.35 and EPS files whose complete path include spaces?

I can see nothing wrong or changed in the scripts:


However, since installing v1.35 (either original, a or b), every time I 
drag onto TeXShop an EPS file whose complete path includes a space, for 
example "~/Documents/Articles/Article 4/Version 
1/Figures/EPS-Illustrator/field7hig025.eps", I just get in console.log 
an error:

> Error: /undefinedfilename in (4/Version)
> Operand stack:

> --nostringval--   2   %stopped_push   --nostringval--   
> --nostringval--   --nostringval--   false   1   %stopped_push

> AFPL Ghostscript 8.13: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1
> Broken pipe

(note the error appears just after the first space in the path) and no 
PDF file is produced.

Is it just me, or is it reproducible on other people's setup?

BTW, the script epstopdf included in TeXShop is v2.6 while that in 
gwTeX is v2.9draft (and this latter version seems to reside on a 
different branch from the former, the two diverging apparently after
