Updating a ticket with a multi-word tag?

I'm having an issue getting the API to allow me to update an ticket through the api that has a multi-word tag, it doesn't seem to recognize it. Single word tags seem to work okay. The multi word tags are working properly during ticket creation (via api), and both cases work via the web app, but updating an existing ticket doesn't seem to.

Steps are:

  1. Create a ticket
  2. Update the tags with something like 'words with spaces'

It doesn't seem to like that multi-space input, and 'words with spaces' never shows up as a valid tag. If i did something like 'nospacesatall', that would show up fine. Sorry for keeping you guys busy today!

    this ruby code works here on an existing ticket.

    ticket.tag = "email \"test multi\""
