GIMP 2.10.x Won't run under a directory with spaces in the name

Tested in multiple drives and folders. If the folder has a long name with spaces, the program will launch and close immediately. This behavior does not happen with any other program from PortableApps.com, that I use (and I use a lot of them).

I think it's the same bug this guy was experiencing!

EDIT.: I did the following tests:

C:\GIMP - OK
F:\GIMP - OK
F:\Portable\GIMP\ - OK
F:\Portable\Portable_GIMP - OK
F:\Portable\Edição de Imagens\GIMP - Does not run

EDIT2.: I did a new test:

F:\Portable\Edicao de Imagens\Portable_GIMP - OK

So the problem is not the space in the name, it's the latin characters

GIMP Issue

GIMP itself can not run from a path with non-ASCII characters whether portable or not: https://portableapps.com/apps/graphics_pictures/gimp_portable#app-notes

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
