Polybios fails and hangs the program if loaded from a path with spaces

This happens at least on all Amiga compatible platforms, but not on Windows. Haven't tried others.

If I don't have polybios installed in libs:hollywood, but load it from the program directory, and if I have spaces in the path name, Polybios fails to open any PDF file and the compiled program hangs (can't be quitted with ctrl-c or anything).

For example, if I have a compiled program in "Work:poly bios test/polybiostest" and run it on MorphOS (or AmigaOS), a shell window pops up telling:
Work:poly: Unknown command
Work:poly failed returncode 10

Or if I have the compiled program in "Ram Disk:polybiostest/polybiostest", the output says:
Ram: Unknown command
Ram failed returncode 10

So, it looks that execution of something (polybios.ext?) fails because the name gets cutted to the first space in the path name.

Yes, this problem is already known and will be fixed in the next version. Only the Amiga platform is affected.
