[Samba] Mounting shares with spaces in names?

Anyone know if it's possible to mount a share with spaces in the name?

I'm working on an embedded platform with busybox ash, and a recent 
(3.0.25a) samba installation.

I've tried various combinations of

mount.cifs //share/'with space' ....
mount.cifs //share/with\ space ....
mount.cifs "//share/with space" ....

and a few others I've forgotten and they all fail.  I'm not sure if this 
is a busybox issue with handling whitespace in ash, or a samba problem.

Are shares with spaces valid?  If so can mount.cifs handle them?  And if 
so, how?
