xdg-mime can't handle desktop file with spaces in their name
Submitted by Jean

If a directory is named "bar foo baz" in an "applications" directory and there exist
a "foo" directory in the current working directory and the directory "foo" has
a filename or subdirectory called "a foo b", a call to
xdg-mime query default <mimetype> for a non-existent mimetype would freeze. The freezing would make some other programs that rely on xdg-mime freeze as well.
When xdg-mime enter the function
search_desktop_file, it searches each subdirectory with
for f in $dir/*/; do, which expands to
for f in $dir/bar foo baz/; do, it will then search recursively "foo" and will go into a loop.
Using the command
find might solve this issue.
