2.16.2 on Linux with GRASS 7.

I did not test all of them, but at least for v.split.vert, v.split.length and r.blend.combine QGIS will create calls to GRASS without quoting of filenames. So if a filename contains spaces, it will fail.

For example here the layer name is not quoted:
v.in.ogr min_area=0.0001 snap=-1 input="/home/me/some path" layer=my fancy layer output=tmp1472549688385 --overwrite -o

Here the input name is not quoted:
r.in.gdal input=/home/me/some path/input.vrt output=tmp14725505976613 --overwrite -o

I would recommended checking through all of it to find all the cases. 8)
