I'm the original bug reporter. You guys seem to have misunderstood the problem.
The issue is not that there are spaces in the paths specified on the command
line. It's that there are spaces in the subdirectories. i.e. My command line
specified "rsync://root@" and rsync gives an error
for "/coppit/0/Palm/Users/David Coppit/SplashPhoto/E75FFB6FBF98B52F/DCIM".

You say, "Spaces in names read from directories don't make any difference to
rsync." Do you have any hypothesis as to why spaces seem to result in the
errors I am seeing? Perhaps there is some interaction with some other aspect of
the system? Let me know if I can do anything to help debug this.
