[gdb6.8] Cannot set breakpoint at path with round brackets

Hi everyone, is it known problem that gdb recognizes paths with round 
brackets as function? I have project inside 'c:/Program Files (x86)/...' 
and gdb searches for function 'c:/Program Files (x86)'. Is there any 
workaround (except moving project to another folder ;) )?

-break-insert "\"C:/Program Files (x86)/Project/test.cpp\":12"

gdb returns:
Function "C:/Program Files (x86)" not defined.
