Pyrex: problem with blanks in string

Hi,

When trying to wrap C code using Pyrex, I encountered a strange problem with a 
piece of pure Python code. I tried to isolate the problem. The following code 
causes Pyrex to generate C code which gcc cannot compile:

class Axis:
    axtype = "unknown type of axis"

    def __init__(self):
       pass

When I substitute the blanks in the string for something else, then the problem 
disappears:

class Axis:
    axtype = "unknown_type_of_axis"

    def __init__(self):
       pass

Does anybody have an idea?
