torrc no longer accepts space in executable paths

I'm not sure exactly when this change happened but still works with a space in the executable path while fails to launch the executable with the same torrc file.

The following is an example torrc line that no longer works:

ClientTransportPlugin obfs2,obfs3,obfs4,scramblesuit exec C:\Program Files\obfs4proxy.exe

Is this change documented somewhere? I'd like to keep the executable path unchanged if there is a simple workaround

ahf has a local Windows box and might be able to diagnose this faster than the rest of us.

ahf, let me know if you want me to give your other 0.4.0 bugs to other people?
Have you started working on any of them yet?
