[MonoDevelop] Custom command path with space

I'm using MonoDevelop 2.4.2 on Windows XP with .Net 3.5.

I want to execute a command which path contains a space (as it's under
"C:\Program Files\").
If I just browse to it, the Command text box simply contains the path
without any quotes, and when I execute it the MonoDevelop External Console
tells me that "C:\Program" isn't recognized.

If I add double quotes around the path (what I would usually do in Windows
in such a case), then in MonoDevelop Application Output I get "Command
execution failed. Illegal characters in path." (I tried with simple quotes
and it's not happy either).

If I point to a path containing no space, or if I just write the command
name and the path is know in %PATH%, then it works.

If I just write the application name in the Command text box and the path
(with white space) in the Working Directory text box then it also works (but
in my case I need the Working Directory to be something else).

How can I make it work? Is there an escape character to use?
