vditool can't handle whitespaces in arguments

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


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.
