After some digging through the sources and googling around I think the
problem is not with luatex's implementation but with _spawnvpe
function on Windows, which can't handle arguments with spaces (how
pathetic). So I should write to M$ now, I guess. Sigh. At least there
is a workaround with setting arg[0] explicitly, but some note to
unwary in the documentation would be good as well.

Cheers,

Tomek
