Thank you for finding this.  The patch look sane, and I see the
problem, but why do you say that it break ifup completely?  When I
just tested, ifup did what it was supposed to do, even if a space is
present.  I would expect it to break NFS mounting, but not much more.
What did I misunderstand?

Happy hacking,
