[GRASS-dev] can there be spaces in DBF table names?

I just tried importing a DBF file with v.in.db. It failed with:

DBMI-DBF driver error:
SQL parser error: 
in statement:
select Sample_id, Longitude, Latitude from ss ll
Error in db_open_select_cursor()

ERROR: Cannot open select cursor: 'select Sample_id, Longitude, Latitude
       from ss ll'

The table is in a file called "ss ll.dbf".
If I rename it to remove the space in the name it works fine.
Is this a quoting problem in GRASS or an illegal DBF table name?
