CVSImport - spaces in CVS path

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
I'm in the process of moving an entire collection of cvs modules into git. I'm working in Mac Yosemite. Everything is working fine except for one thing. A couple of the CVS modules have spaces in the paths. Below is what my command line looks like. When the path has spaces I've tried putting it in single and double quotes and using escape characters.  None of that matters. I always get a message that it can't read dir/dir/path and then messages that it can't find the modules "with" or "spaces".  

git cvsimport -v -d :pserver:MYLOGIN:/usr/local/cvsroot/ dir/dir/PathWithNoSpaces/dir    

git cvsimport -v -d :pserver:MYLOGIN:/usr/local/cvsroot/ dir/dir/path with spaces/dir
