User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.24pre (20091019)

When Sending (not really composing) with an attached file named:
"test file.txt"  things will work, but
"test%20file.txt" will not work. 

But, bizarrely, "a%20test%20file.txt" did work...  

 




Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use notepad to create an empty (or not) file named test%20file.txt
2. Drag and drop into a message
3. Try and send it to yourself
Actual Results:  
When it doesn't work, the error message is to check the temporary directory setting.
NOTE, the file referenced in the error message has a space, not the %20 - hence it can't find it, since the filename has a %20 in it.


I tried several combinations of %20, and for some reason, some would work, so it isn't just a matter of any %20 causing the issues.  Also, if I have a "problem" filename attached to a message, and an auto save tries to save the message, it can not find the file, and I get an error message also (check temporary directory setting).

Lee you can try to see that it no happens with latest beta 3 at
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-comm-1.9.1/ 

2.X is a security fix and maintainance branch it's very
unlikely that what fixed this bug ends up backported to the 2.x branch.

Feel free to reopen it if you can reproduce this issue also on 3.0.x release.
