There seems to be additional positions still to fix to correct the problem.

log showing how the proposed patch affects updxlrator

After three attempts which redownloaded the entire file each time, I applied the proposed patch and then updxlrator recognized that the file was cached locally.

This patch specifically fixes the bug reported in 10504, which was marked as a duplicate.

You guys need to follow the list since this bug has already been fixed here:

Sorry, did not see that.
Nevertheless this patch perhaps fixes some problems only. Space is a special character also, which can produce issues when inside a file name.

Outstanding is still the use of $ in a filename. + and ~ were fixed long ago and \ is currently under review in bug 12252
