There seem to be some issue with spaces, indeed. On the command line I
tried this for tmp.ps and "t m p.ps" (the same file, just renamed):

F:\Temp\TeX>dir /b tmp.p*

F:\Temp\TeX>ps2pdf tmp.ps && dir /b tmp.p*

F:\Temp\TeX>dir /b "t m p.p*"
t m p.ps

F:\Temp\TeX>ps2pdf "t m p.ps" & dir /b "t m p.p*"

I have bin-tlgs.win32 rev.9703, I think that's the current one, but my
installation is after a lot of experiments, so I'm sure if it is in
good working condition now.

Germain, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We will
investigate. In the mean time you will have to use names without
spaces (which is a good idea in any case).
