.desktop file generator handles paths with spaces incorrectly

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Nowadays wine intercepts certain WinAPI calls which should create shortcuts in
Windows Start Menu and Desktop. Wine then creates appropriate freedesktop.org
.desktop files (in ~/Desktop and ~/Desktop/WINE Applications.
Unfortunately sometimes these .desktop-files are generated not completely
correctly. The working path of the application (typically a path to the
application .exe-file) usually contains spaces within (e.g. because of "Program
Files") and thus must be quoted by application setup procedures (smth like
"C:\Program Files\2gis\Nsk"). But when this path is translated to Path entry of
the corresponding .desktop-file it should be unquoted back:
Otherwise the setting doesn't have an effect which may break certain
applications (e.g. 2gis Nsk)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. You may try to install 2gis/Nsk (may be downloaded for free from
http://download.2gis.ru/arhives/2gisNsk87.exe to see the problem
Будет исправлено в следующей сборке.
