Yeah, I'd say the python implementation isn't expecting spaces in a
URL and in this case decides the rest of the URL belongs into the title.
Markdown.pl only does this when it encounters a ". It basically sees

![alternativer text](pfad/und/eine "lange/url zum bild.jpg")

But while we're finding bugs(?) with the image syntax, Markdown.pl
converts this to

<p>!<a href="pfad/und/eine lange/url zum bild.jpg">alternativer text</

And does so until all spaces are removed from the URL. Only then does
it get
rendered as <img>.

Arguably you could work around this by encoding all spaces as %20, but
then again
one might expect Markdown to do this.
