I have tried to reproduce this, but without success so far. i-Installer 
itself is pretty ignorant of spaces in directory names. It might be 
that not all packages are and that scripts need mending. I have not 
checked all functions of all packages.

Again, no. i-Installer retrieves the new table of contents, then checks 
for all files that are already available if the MD5 checksum has 
changed. If the checksum has changed, the file has changed and it is 
removed from the local package for lazy update when needed. This is 
reported in the messages view.

If you have problems, please report them directly to me and include 
output from i-Installer (views and Console), maybe even set the log 
level to 4 or 5 or so.
