[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#787557: exo-utils: exo-open seems confused by escaped characters in URL's

Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.10.6-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

With exo-open I can open a file or directory with embedded spaces using a
command like

  exo-open 'A B'
  exo-open 'A\ B'
  exo-open 'file:/home/user/A B'
but I can't open the file using URL escaped characters as in
  exo-open 'file:/home/user/A%20B'
I found this problem while using Calibre, as it replaces spaces by %20's before
opening files. I'm sorry I'm not sure if this is Calibre's fault or exo-open's
