xbuild fails to build a project file if it has a space in the pathname, eh:
`xbuild Project\ Name.csproj` fails to run indicating that no file with the
name "Name.csproj" exists...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create any file with a space in the filename.
2. Attempt to get xbuild to compile the file (contents shouldn't matter)
3. xbuild complains the filename doesn't exist (as it ignores everything before
the space in the pathname)
Actual Results:  
See details.

Expected Results:  
xbuild should recognise the escape character (\ ) and/or quotations around the
filename - and try to compile the file with the 'whole' pathname, not just the
end of it.
