When I try to export my tracker I get this:
---

you cannot use windows notation of "current directory on
drive c" for export.  please specify either relative path
(no drive letter) or full absolute path with backslash after
drive name.

a1s,

My bug was not a bad one, although you are partially correct.

Please look at this log below.  Notice that it works without
quotation marks in one place, but not the other?  I would
still consider it a bug.

So, I did manage to get an export, and thank you for that!
:)  But it's still a bug.

parsing command line in roundup-admin shell is not
consistent with command line arguments.  if i run export
from command line like 'roundup-admin export
C:\roundup\export' it works ok, but the same command entered
at roundup-admin prompt raises error shown above.

the culprit is the token module eating up backslashes:

>>> from roundup import token
>>> token.token_split("export C:\\roundup\\export")
['export', 'C:\roundupexport']

Does this work if the user uses:

 c:/roundup/export

AFAIK the underlying windows calls will use either \ or /.

If so we can document it and move on.
