shouldn't this happen in String:standardizePath ?

no, because spaces need only be escaped when the path is merged into a
shell commandline.

File("/Users/sk/Foo Bar", "r")

and

File("/Users/sk/Foo\\ Bar", "r")

do not do the same thing ...

Sorry if I'm being dense, but don't you have one more slash than you need?

File("/tmp/Foo Bar", "w") and File("/tmp/Foo\ Bar", "w") do do the same thing.

But actually what the method should do is check to make sure that the space is not already escaped.
