Question problem opening files and paths that contain spaces

I'm running Calibre 0.9.14 on Linux Mint 13. I'm not exactly sure when this stopped working correctly, but I can no longer open files or paths from the panel on the right because of the spaces in the names. Opening a path triggers an error message for every word in the path. Opening a text file opens a new file in my text editor for each word in the file name. If I perform the same operations in my file manager or via an Open File dialog, the action is successful.

It seems to me that whatever part of Linux that is responsible for URL encoding/escaping isn't doing its job. Trouble is, I don't know what to look for. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
