        At first glance, this workaround appears to work.
        I'd rather fix it properly, though. The main reason I wrote
was that I'm willing to work on fixing it, but wanted to approach you
first and see if I should do so, or if there's deep magic involved
that I shouldn't mess with.
        In particular, Elisp strings may contain \0, which is IMO
unlikely to appear in any filename (and cannot appear in a Unix
filename). Would it be possible to use "/\0" for quoting?
