Are you sure it's not the shell playing tricks on you? Siag like most Unix
programs doesn't treat spaces specially as part of filenames. I can do

libretto:~$ mkdir "dir with spaces"
libretto:~$ siag		# create file in new directory
libretto:~$ ls "dir with spaces"
more spaces.siag
libretto:~$ siag "dir with spaces/more spaces.siag"

The quotes are necessary.
