cmdline options getting \x20?

I have a project that can pass run time options via the /proc/cmdline, and it 
has worked fine with syslinux, grub4dos, and grub for a long time, but just 
run into an issue with a new install of Fedora 20? 

The spaces in the option are being replaced with \x20 with the grub of 
Fedora 20? Same option of previous fedoras hadn't noticed this, though most 
systems where version 17, so it could have also been with 18 or 19?

Was able to resolve it by having my project use sed to replace \x20 in the 
command line with spaces, but wondering when this change occurred with 
grub2, since none of the other boot loaders seem to do this.

Found a mention of this in fedora 18 bugzilla, but the message was 
commented with EOL for 18, so there was no resolution of the issue?
