Quoting is tricky business, and it's easy to mess it up. But details
matter, and in most cases the problem is not that shell-quote-argument
doesn't work right, but that it's not called on the right data, or it's
not called at all, or the result is then later massaged incorrectly,
Once you have a concrete problem case, file a bug report.
