in 6.0u1 at least it works without any problems (both spooling methods).

    % qsub -N "asd asd asd"

--> output filenames:
     asd asd asd.o3689
     asd asd asd.e3689

    % grep asd asd\ asd\ asd.o3689
    REQNAME=asd asd asd
    JOB_NAME=asd asd asd
    REQUEST=asd asd asd
    SGE_STDOUT_PATH=/home/as114086/asd asd asd.o3689
    SGE_STDERR_PATH=/home/as114086/asd asd asd.e3689
