[Dev-luatex] again problems ..., os.spawn and spaces in names

Hi Taco,

I have again a strange thing happening:

	for i,v in pairs(command) do print("DEBUG: ",i,v) end
	ret = os.spawn(command)

gives me:
	DEBUG:	1	C:/tl test/2008/tlpkg/tlperl/bin/perl.exe
	DEBUG:	2	c:/tl test/2008/texmf/scripts/texlive/generate-updmap.pl
Can't open perl script "test/2008/tlpkg/tlperl/bin/perl.exe": No such file or directory

Do you have any idea where this is coming from? It seems perl is telling
me something about opening itself??? I am a bit surprised about that.

Do you have any suggestion? Thanks!

Best wishes
