Hi Geoff,

Thanks a lot of testing it. Reply in-line;

I can fix this, I added this because earlier people could have create a profile with blank
name (empty string) which caused weird things.

I’ll have to check this, by launching do you mean when cloudmonkey starts (from terminal)
or when an API is called within interpreter mode?

in particular anything with spaces in seems to fail:

> Now it generates a Compute Offering with a name of "Ultra\ Tiny" and a description of
"Ultra\ Tiny\ -\ 1vCPU,\ 128MB\ RAM" - note the \ before every space

There was a shell lexical parsing issue I fixed and then the unicode support I added, it could
be a side-effect I’ll check it out.

Can you check the current profile’s timeout? The default is 3600 (seconds, or 1hour).
