          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

Version:           0.99-devel (using KDE 3.2 BRANCH >= 20040204, Mandrake Linux Cooker i586 - Cooker)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.2 (Mandrake Linux 10.0 3.3.2-6mdk)

plugin slave vectors tag names [can] contain spaces (if, eg, the param name has spaces)

Equations can't handle tag names that have spaces.

This means that you can't use said slave vectors in equations.

This may be a problem with scalars as well.

i) make equations able to handle spaces in vector names.
ii) Make kstvector and kstscalar constructors, setTagName, and 'find in list' stuff automatically convert ' ' to '_'.
iii) make sure whenever we create a tagname, we replace ' ' with '_' on the UI/dialog side.

Since this breaks a significant feature, we should try to fix it if we can come up with a clean way to fix it (today!).  Discuss on list 1st.
