[armedbear-devel] Filename errors in Windows

I did a little debugging this weekend and the issue came from the command
sent to the external abcl process.  The path separators wren't backslash
escaped.  So the command:

(CL:COMPILE-FILE "D:\src\lisp\plus.lisp")

will fail, while either one of the following will succeed:

(CL:COMPILE-FILE "D:\\src\\lisp\\plus.lisp")
(CL:COMPILE-FILE "D:/src/lisp/plus.lisp")

I've committed r11339 to J's svn trunk that should fix the issue for you.
 Please give it a try and let me know if it works.
