Konqueror Archive Web Page tool no longer automatically converts spaces to underscores

Bug Description

Binary package hint: konqueror

After upgrading to KDE 3.53, the Konqueror Archive-Web-Page tool no longer automatically converts spaces in the page title to underscores in the .war name.

For example, with KDE 3.52, if I go to


in Konqueror and use Tools - Archive Web Page, the Save Page As dialog used to fill-in the file name as


but now it fills it in as

NASA - Corkscrew Asteroids.war

The space-to-underscore feature should not have been removed, since spaces can cause problems when using a shell on *nix. Leaving the spaces in is a Windows-style approach which is not all that commendable (at least in *nix) since spaces are treated as special characters on the command line unless enclosed in quotes.

P.S: I reported this bug upstream at KDE Bugzilla. I am re-reporting it here to ensure it's fixed (patch provided by me at upstream report) at least for Kubuntu.
