Recall that the backslash is the escape character in Python and that
therefore you need to put \\ to get a backslash in the resulting path
string. Thus, the path you think you're adding isn't the path that's
getting added.
Alternatively, you can just use forward slashes instead (yes, that
works on Windows from Python).

Cheers,
Chris
