--exclude with whitespace

I am using the default rsync 2.6.3 on OS X 10.5.3 and having issues  
with my exclude options. I want to exclude a directory which has  
whitespace in its name e.g. "My Directory" by adding --exclude="My  
Directory" as a relative path. Now this exclude filter only works when  
the name does not contain a whitespace. Is this problem rsync specific?

Thanks, Philippe
