Package: python-pyrrd
Version: 0.1.0-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

When using the external backend, pyrrd does not properly sanitize the 
filename parameter passed to the shell and fails to use / create a 
database with spaces in the filename.

I have already reported this to upstream as 
where there are a couple examples that trigger the failure.
