I do so as well.  It's more a GUI than a Windows problem.

I tried and it seems that there is a severe bug in pdftex.

     \input "foo    bar"

loads the file "foo bar.tex" which is certainly not desired behavior.  

I send this mail to the pdftex developers list as well.

Maybe this problem had been fixed already, I'm using 

      "This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.30.4-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.5)"

Regards, and thanks for the hint,

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
