Hi !

On the contrary, the quoting is done to avoid problem with quotes in
filenames (before that I was unable to index files with single quotes or
double quotes, and specialy crafted filenames could lead to arbitrary
command invocations :-( ). No quotes should be added for filter invocation,
you should invoque the filters like this, for example:

Filefilter  .pdf %p

Maybe something needs to be updated in the docs ?
