Menu item that causes the problem
I can confirm this issue if I log in using my account "Full Name" in the connection dialog. There is one detail missing in the steps to reproduce:
You must select:
"Tools -> iOS -> Open Mac Agent Console"
It is in particular _that_ menu item that fails, not the whole menu.
Login using the "Account Name" instead.
(For this workaround, it is necessary to "Forget this Mac" in the connection dialog and then re-login.)
(One way to find the "Account name" is to Control-click the user name in "System Preferences -> User & Groups" and select "Advanced Options".)
## Alternate workaround
An alternate workaround (as mentioned by the original reporting user) is to re-enter the command in the `cmd.exe` process after it fails, but edit it to add quotation marks around the user name:

Fixed in version 220.127.116.119 (xcode7.1)
