Re: spaces in command line message arg (-m)

Using linux (debian sid), bash.

I suspect it's my wrapper function which is causing this havoc:

svn() {
  umask 002
  /usr/bin/svn $@
  umask $xumask

> It is the shell (the Command Line Interpreter) that handles quotes and
should interpret the quoted message as a single argument. What shell are
you using? Under Unix and under Cygwin, most shells including Bash handle
this correctly. Under Windows, some versions of the Windows/DOS shell do
not, especially when passing arguments to a batch file.
