My advice to you is: rename your files to eliminate the special chars.
Even if you get this working, every person that installs your .rpm will curse you
b/c now they have to figure out how to special case your special filenames too,
Don't put spaces/(special chars) in filenames.

Yeah, I would do that if I'd control the filenames. Unfortunately, I don't.

I was quite surprised to see spaces in paths in an actual upstream project, but that's the reality we live in. I might personally start a discussion with this particular upstream and ask them politely to reconsider. But I still need to write code that can handle anything various upstreams might have.
