New submission from FeralBytes:

Well trying to test out venv on Python 3.3.2 on Linux Mint 16 x64 I was not able to get pip to execute correctly after it had been installed. The error from bash is:

(venv) wolfrage at wolfrage-KGP-M-E-D16 /media/ShareDrives/HomePlus/Jordan/Projects/The Strategist $ pip install pysdl2
bash: /home/wolfrage/Projects/The Strategist/venv/bin/pip: /home/wolfrage/Projects/The: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

Same exact setup procedures in a path with out any spaces works as expected:

(venv) wolfrage at wolfrage-KGP-M-E-D16 /media/ShareDrives/HomePlus/Jordan/Projects $ pip install pysdl2 --allow-external pysdl2 --allow-unverified pysdl2

>>> import sdl2

I hope that this can be fixed prior to 3.4 being released.
This not only affected pip but easy_install too.
