Cache file location can be blank and prevent fluid simulation from reading baked data

System Information
Microsoft Windows 10 Professional, version 1607
Graphics card information omitted because of lack of relevance.

Blender Version
Broken: 2.78c (hash: e92f235283)

Short description of error
If the custom path specified contains space (or the file path contains space and the custom path is left blank), the baking will complete but the fluid domain object remains unchanged.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. unzip the zip file and keep that file in its folder ("FEEL THE SPACE POWER", anyway make sure there is a space in its path)
  2. double check that the baking target path is left blank and bake

Aaron Carlisle (Blendify) lowered the priority of this task from Needs Triage by Developer to Normal.

The issue is not the space in the path but that the bake location field can be blank.

Can’t confirm that on linux, this is most likely an issue with Windows, Blender not being able to write simulation files in the auto-computed path (which seems to be mere current directory, not ideal, should rather be current .blend file directory probably…).

@Bastien Montagne (mont29) you are correct, I just tested on linux and had no issue.
