Long file names (with spaces) in view spec

How do I put in a long directory name (with spaces) in the client 
view spec?

Perforce treats spaces as delimeters in the view spec.

If I use the short file/dir names (i.e. with ~) then drag and drop to 
add files doesn't work--Perforce doesn't seem to recognize that the 
long & short forms are equivalent.

I've tried quoting the strings with " and ', and tried quoting the 
spaces with \.
