When safe_mode is set to On, it is impossible to pass a variable that contains a 
string with a space in it as an argument to any system() like function. The following 
script shows the problem:

   $somevar = "this is a test";
   exec(" $somevar", $return);
   echo $return[0];
?> being a simple shell script that echoes back anything that we feed it. The 
following PHP script will display 'this' instead of 'this is a test'. I tried 
backslashing every chars of the variable by writing a simple function but spaces seems 
not to be correctly passed to the shell script. The same script executed when 
safe_mode is set to off works perfectly...
