That is an excellent point. It definitely is a good habit to use those double quotes (something I'm guilty of not always doing), and this is an excellent example of why that's so.


I have a habit of not using spaces or nonstandard characters in paths or filenames, so I didn't use the double quotes. As you pointed out, however, that can possibly lead to portability or maintenance problems.
