Sorry - I don't think I was very clear about this. What I mean is, file and directory names should never be created with spaces in them, because, although it is technically permissible, it causes lots of trouble for shell users.

My suggestion is that digikam ought to behave in the same way as XMMS, i.e. in the GUI, display spaces, but in the filesystem, replace metacharacters by underscores.

Digikam works just fine on its own, but for me, the fundamental, pre-eminent interface to everything is bash; spaces in filenames are just A Bad Thing!
