when executed with file name containing spaces, basename returns only first part of file name (until space).

I can't reproduce this:

$ basename --version
basename (GNU coreutils) 5.93
$ basename '/tmp/filename with spaces'
filename with spaces

Could you give an example transcript of the problem you're seeing. It's possible there's a misunderstanding about how the shell passes arguments to basename; be sure to quote the filename properly.
