New submission from Claudio Canepa <ccanepacc at gmail.com>:

in windows XP, python 2.6.1, 2.6 , python 2.4
1. do an Edit | 'Find in files' [ it pop ups the Output Window with 
2. Right click over one of the target lines found, click the 'goto file
\line' pop up

If the path in the target line has spaces, it will popup a window with 
title 'No special line' and message 'the line you point at doenst look 
like a valid file name followed by a line number'

posible fix:
in idlelib/OutputWindow.py
replace the literal

fair warning: seems to work in windows XP, dont know about other OSes
