I think David had been battling different versions of Windows trying to get
it to work.  We need to get this ironed out so we don't have to deal with
Windows ;)

For example, I just got this to work on Win98 (and with a fresh download
just now from

E:\Program Files\SWISH-E25>swish-e -i c:/home/swish-e/src
Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Indexing "c:/home/swish-e/src"

as did this:

E:\Program Files\SWISH-E25>swish-e -i ../swish-e25/html
Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Indexing "../swish-e25/html"

So it seems to work on Win98, but 2K is not complaining.

David, I know where the \ is coming from, but I'm not clear which of the
Win32 calls is causing the problem past that point.
