Patch attached that escapes the executable name so this test doesn't fail.

I can confirm this issue. 2 tests fail without this patch. please apply.

here are the failing tests:
FAIL: test_args_string (test.test_subprocess.ProcessTestCase)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ralf/tt tt/trunk/Lib/test/", line 544,
in test_args_string
    self.assertEqual(p.returncode, 47)
AssertionError: 126 != 47

FAIL: test_call_string (test.test_subprocess.ProcessTestCase)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/ralf/tt tt/trunk/Lib/test/", line 585,
in test_call_string
    self.assertEqual(rc, 47)
AssertionError: 126 != 47

The patch works for me, and doesn't change anything except the test 

Not having spaces in your path also helps. ;)
