Bug#484703: totem: Can not read from Samba location with weird charaters

Package: totem
Version: 2.22.2-3
Severity: normal

When starting totem with a file from a gnome-vfs with a space in it
totem can not play that file.

Opening a file with Movie->Open and browsing to a Samba-Share with a
space I get:

** Message: Error: Could not read from resource.
gstgnomevfssrc.c(683): gst_gnome_vfs_src_create (): /play/source:
Failed to read data: Invalid parameters

The error is the same when I drag and drop a file from nautilus. An
example filename would be (as dragging from nautilus in a terminal

A name without spaces in the location works.

Regards, Kai
