In the makeglossaries Perl script, after reading the aux file, a regular expression substitution exists to remove double-quotes from within $istfile. However, it is only for $istfiles which use the .ist extension. If using xindy, the $istfile will have a .xdy extension. This causes the regexp to find no matches, thus leaving the double-quotes and subsequently producing errors. The regexp needs to be modified to also handle .xdy files. The solution is as follows. Replace the line:
with the following line:
This will correctly handle both .ist and .xdy extensions, and will finally allow those using xindy to use pathnames with spaces.
