No. Its like this for a reason. The space is the field delimiter. Also the 
quote character has special meaning. So, if the text has one of these in it, 
it must be encoded so that it won't fool the parsers. All audit tools, 
libraries, know how to handle the encoding. Your string is this:

type=EXECVE msg=audit(08/18/2010 03:46:51.037:27469599) : argv[0]=cmd 
argv[1]=-a argv[2]=foo argv[3]=-b argv[4]=-c argv[5]=-query 

Its there, you just need to access it via interpretation.
