Pseudo: improve the error message when filenames with spaces are used

If someone used filenames with spaces but didn't backslash
the spaces (or use the new support for quoted filenames), then they'd
get the less than illuminating error message

"Read filename and type, but failed to read or match octal mode"

Because the code would treat the filename before the first space
as the filename, match the type using the first character after
the space, and only then fail to parse the expected octal number.
