odd, fwiw I didn't have that problem with --create-installer exe.
Possibly because I'm doing --create-image as a separate first step? The
space-squashing actually happens in that step, and then before either
--create-installer I put the spaces back into the exe and cfg filenames
... but possibly miss it *inside* a file and that just hasn't happened
to cause me a problem yet?
