Title parsing in psconvert -W+t"title" fails if title contains a + sign
|Target version:||Candidate for next bugfix release|
Subject says it all. Need to protect plus signs inside this string from being used as token separator. See how this is done in other places.

Fixed in r18284. Because string arguments in quotes to +t etc are stripped by the shell there are no quotes to parse inside GMT. If your string or document name or folder name contains a plus symbol followed by a letter other than space you have three ways to handle this:
- Escape the plus sign with a backslash.
- Places double quotes around the name or title and then single quotes around the entire argument to -W.
- Same, but exchange the single and double quotes.
GMT parsing will handle these cases and strip off any remaining quotes around the entire title or name.
