I have a site that was just updated to EE 2.5.3 and since then it looks like any image I had in a file field that had spaces in the file name now appears to have + in place of the space. THis has caused all the image sources to be broken.

ie: an image with the name file name.jpg that was uploaded now appears to be file+name.jpg so the image is broken when viewed in the browser.


Looks like a bug in 2.5.3 that was fixed.
