[OS X TeX] Applescript in TS

The script does not recognize blanks in the file name. I gives the applescript error:

"The files /Users/themis/WorkStuff/Classes/ChE, /220/Homework/_hw-collection, and /[2011]/problem-dbase/ch7_mix_steam_1/problem.tex do not exist."

The script has broken the file name into three strings by cutting where the blanks are. The correct file name, as read by dropping the file on the terminal, is

/Users/themis/WorkStuff/Classes/ChE\ 220/Homework/_hw-collection\ \[2011\]/problem-dbase/ch7_mix_steam_1/problem.tex 

Is there easy easy fix for that?
