vditool can't handle whitespaces in arguments

Reported by: schuetzm Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: virtual disk
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux

Description

When vditool is called for an image with spaces in the name, it prints the following error:

vditool SHRINK Windows\ 2000\ VM.vdi

... Syntax error: Invalid argument count!

vditool shouldn't do argument parsing on Linux, as this is already done by the shell.

That is probably right but vditool should not be used if possible.

VBoxManage modifyvdi <uuid>|<filename> compact

should do the same.
