Yes, I can confirm this.

However, I'm not certain that this is a problem.  *NIX will handle file 
names with spaces.  OTOH, they can cause problems when using a shell -- 
they are considered a special character on the command line if the file 
isn't enclosed in quotes.  So, I would say that the underscore should 
probably be retained.  File a bug, and I will confirm it if you e-mail 
me with the bug number.
