HDlink encoding and (parentheses)

I have recently discovered that HDlink, while encoding .mt2 files to Cineform avi hangs if trying to convert a file that has a parentheses in the file name.

For example:

Test file (01).m2t
(A file with parentheses seems to hangs HDlink and encoding stops about 3/4 of the way)

Test file 01.m2t
(A file without parentheses will encode fine)

Can anyone confirm the same behavior. This is a bit of a problem as On-Location uses parentheses when adding new takes.

I just added ( ) to a CineformFS2 file name and used HDLink to export a CineformHD file from it without any problems.

It may well be just something weird about my system or converting from .m2t but it hangs everytime, although without the ( ) it's fine. It's not the end of the world by a long shot but a minor annoyance.
