[NTG-context] font name has a space.

Dear Taco,

Thank you for your comment.

I renamed the font to ~.ttf, luatools --generate first.

And try the same file. 
At this time, there is no "Fatal error messages", but still it doesn't locate the font file.

So, I tested a few more things.

Test 1:
luatools locates all the fonts which has no space from the same font maker. And, LuaTeX runs well to yield fine output.

Math-iMac:~ graph$ luatools 산돌돌CB.otf

Math-iMac:~ graph$ luatools 산돌명조B.otf

Test 2:
luatools cannot locate the fonts which has space from the same font maker.

Math-iMac:~ graph$ luatools 산돌명조M.otf

Math-iMac:~ graph$ luatools 산돌명조 M.otf

Math-iMac:~ graph$ luatools 산돌명조\space M.otf

But it locates the same file if I enclose "font name".
Math-iMac:~ graph$ luatools "산돌명조 M.otf"
/Users/graph/Library/Fonts/산돌명조 M.otf

So I tired  \definefont[testfont][file:"산돌명조 M.otf"], but LuaTeX issue an error

system          > begin file testmp.tex at line 29
! LuaTeX error <main ctx instance>:1: ')' expected near '?'.

system          > tex > error on line 30 in file testmp.tex: LuaTeX error  ...

                                                  \edef \somefontspec {at \n...
\dododefinefont ...inefont {#2}\rawfontidentifier 
                                                  \csname \rawfontidentifier...
l.30 \testfont

I tested english font which has a space in its name and got the same results. For example, "Geogia Bold.ttf" font.
luatools cannot locate it and LuaTeX said "unknown font." and used default font.

I renamed it GeogiaBold.ttf in /Library/fonts and tried again, but not succeed.

Hence, I think that the font whose name contains no space has no problem.
The fonts whose name contains a space make a trouble eventhough I removed the space from it.

Am I doing right? 

I am using Mac OSX. And, 

This is LuaTeX, Version beta-0.65.0-2010121316 
 \write18 enabled.

Thank you again.

Best regards,
