I found the solution ( i think )
i did

 svn add  html/Set min account.html
svn: warning: 'html/Set' not found
svn: warning: 'min' not found
svn: warning: 'account.html' not found

then i did
svn add  "html/Set min account.html"
A         html/Set min account.html

so here is my final answer

instead of doing

for i in $(svn st | grep "?" | awk '{print $2}'); do svn add $i;done

i can do

for i in $(svn st | grep "?" | awk '{print $2}'); do svn add *"$i" *;done

This is working for me ... i wonder if i am going to stumble somewhere
