           Summary: space in module path (rsyncd.conf)
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.7
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: ilg at livius.net
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

the module path I'm trying to use is /Volumes/Time Machine, i.e. with a space
in the middle.

I tried the following:
- to escape the space with \, like Time\ Machine
- to quote the path with "..." or with '...'
but none seem to work, I constantly receive

@ERROR: chdir failed
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5)

test on modules with names without spaces are fine.

the 3.0.7 is from Mac Ports, the Mac OS default is older.
