How does the command you use look like?
Did you try it with quotation marks, e.g.
vmware-vdiskmanager -x 50GB "Windows XP Professional.vmdk"
I found using single quotes around the body of the file name vmware-vdiskmanager -x 50GB 'Windows XP Professional'.vmdk worked. If I used single quite around the whle file name string, I received a locking error.
