st: quotes and dialog boxes

It seems that the general style when entering text in dialog boxes 
is that you don't need quotes, but you can put them in if you
want to. However, in db label, labelling a dataset with "Blah blah"
produces the command
. label data ""Blah blah""
and an error message. The behaviour I expected is that you would get
. label data "Blah blah"
whether you enter quotes or not in the dialog box.

Is this a bug?
