The best solution is to not use spaces in file and directory names. 
Failing that, a workaround is to use an upsupported character (space is
traditional) in the format string to give you an empty field that you
can key off of.  For example, using %{ s } instead of %s would result in
something like:

        "my directory ,my first file, ,my second file,"

Of course, if you also have commas in your file/directory names, that
makes life a bit more interesting.
