Subject: Bug in fvwm2 Version: 2.0.43-BETA-0

Package: fvwm2
Version: 2.0.43-BETA-0

-- Please describe the problems with the package here

install-fvwm2menu sometimes doesn't like to be called with one extra space
in between the "Restart" option and the command to run:

If I execute
  /usr/bin/install-fvwm2menu --install WindowManagers afterstep/start none Afterstep "Restart /usr/bin/X11/afterstep"

then the menuentry WindowManagers/Afterstep will work, but if I execute
  /usr/bin/install-fvwm2menu --install WindowManagers afterstep/start none Afterstep "Restart  /usr/bin/X11/afterstep"

Then the same menuentry does work (note the extra space between Restart
and /usr/bin/X11/afterstep in the above line).
Fvwm2 will output the following error message, upon selecting the
WindowManagers/Afterstep menuentry:
  [FVWM][Done]: <<ERROR>> Call of ' /usr/bin/X11/afterstep' failed!!!!

(and again, there's the extra space just after the first quote).

Yes, seems trivial, but it also means the window-manager menu entries
(like the ones shown above) don't work in the menu-package.
