Shared folders with Mac host do not work from volumes other than boot drive

Two problems. First, when you browse for a shared folder, it fails if there is a space in the name of any directory in the path. You can manually enter the path using \ to escape the space unix style and it will allow you to make the entry. However, it will not work in the Windows guest. Further more, shared folders on volumes other than the boot volume will not work either. In both cases Windows can not find the share once you mount it. You can browse to it, to create a place or shortcut, but you can not open it, Windows says it can't be found.
