Because I answered you before I had coffee ;)

In Slick-C, like in C++, \ escapes certain characters in a double quoted string.  For example, "\t" is a tab character.  "\P" is invalid.

Using single quoted strings gets around this.  However, when you have a filename with spaces like that, you still need to double quote them most of the time.
