created an issue

the startup scripts do not support pathnames with spaces in it. Need to enclose the CP variable in quotations to support this

    I made some patches for the UNIX scripts at They include support for pathnames with spaces and computation of the JHOVE_HOME variable from the script location.

    For UNIX, computation of the classpath by Maven at assembly time is not necessary. The classpath can be dynamically computed at runtime:

    # CP must contain a colon-separated list of JARs used by JHOVE2.
    CP=$(echo ${JHOVE2_HOME}/lib/*.jar | sed -e 's/ /:/g')
