[Wine] running .exe with space in path and getting a crash

I use wine 0.9.37 under Kubuntu 7.04.
I insert USB drive, it gets mounted as /media/something,
then I run an executable (installer) from the command line
with wine :
wine /media/something/some\ folder\setup.exe
And I immediately get the messagebox :
"Access violation at address 004097a6"
"write of address 00400000"
The only workaround was to copy the executable into my home
directory, and run it from there :
What information should I apply to report this as a bug ?
I remember real Windows API uses quite non-trivial logic when
executing programs with space in the executable path, like
probe the longest possible filename with spaces or without, etc.
May be Wine authors should reimplement this specification more
closely, or document this feature of their implementation.
