Ticket #1828 (closed merge: fixed)
ghc doesn't properly quote space-containing paths on Windows.

1) Install ghc 6.8.1 on Windows XP to "C:\Program Files\ghc\".
2) Run ghc newton.hs (any hs file should work here) from your home directory.
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\Program Files\ghc\bin/windres: no resources
Something somewhere in the compilation process seems to try to run something in "C:\Program Files\ghc\" but, even though the program it wants to run has spaces in its path, it doesn't quote it properly.
