OK. I've sorted this, I think.
It is another case of a crap error message leading you on a long and
windy and pointless trip.
What it wanted to tell me was that my arg string had some nasty
characters in it.
That's what you get copying from a Windoze command prompt window. The
clipboard always seems to end with "\00\n". Which is nice.
The coding of misleading error messages should really be a criminal
I'd rather the message was "Error" than something misleading.
Lotus Notes produced the best error message. It was "!".
Nothing ambiguous about that.
