[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#638699: exo-open fails to open a filename with a hash (#)

Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.6.2-1
Severity: normal

Trying to open a doc file that is named: /tmp/a#.doc with the command:
exo-open /tmp/a#.doc
This fails with the message:
Failed to open URI "file:///tmp/a#.doc".
Error stating file '/tmp/a': No such file or directory.

Using less on the same filename works (to the extent that less can
open the file).

This is a reduced test case from a longer filename the constantly
fails for me and contains multiple hashes and other unnatural
