On dialog box for SSH certificate's passphrase, some certificate filenames aren't fully displayed

Store a password-protected SSH client certificate in a location like C:\Documents and Settings\oliverwhite.ssh\id_rsa
(Perhaps this location is significant because it contains spaces, or because the filename is long?)
Do some action in TortoiseGit which requires this certificate, e.g. pushing to a repository whose URL is of the style ssh://git@some_server/project_name
TortoiseGit asks for the password, the upload succeeds, and this all works fine. However, while prompting for the passphrase it doesn't display the full filename of the certificate.
It's trying to ask "Enter passphrase for /location/of/id_rsa".
But because of the space (or whatever) it actually asks:
"Enter passphrase for /c/Documents and"
