Confirmed. Thanks for your report!

There is an upstream bug involved here that I just reported.
The Tor Project Bug report
start-tor-browser.desktop parameter passing broken on spaces
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/18022

Fixes will appear in Whonix 13. And at some point in the testers repository.

Please re-test this in Whonix 13 testers-only release or when the
tb-starter package is updated. Will take a while. No ETA yet.
