What the above seems to be doing is replace:

 a series of one or more punctuation marks FOLLOWED BY
 a series of one or more spaces

Which is not what you want. Presumably anything which isn't alphanumeric is 
classed as either space or punctuation? If so:

I prefer preg_replace so try:

  $SAFEFILENAME = preg_replace('/[^a-zA-Z0-9]/', '', $FILENAME);

While you don't greatly need the outside world, it's still very
reassuring to know that it's still there.
