 I think that we should run the tests.  However, the files with 
 spaces in their names should be created in the objdir from sources 
 that do not have spaces in their names.  After all, the idea is 
 to test whether LLVM can handle files with unusual names, not 
 to cause stress for the source code management system, regular 
 maintenance scripts, ad hoc command line actions, or anything else 
 done by the sysadmin or user.
