Interesting bug

 From the appdb:


* SAVE FOR WEB Solution* : Well, after a fair amount of trail-and-error 
testing, I have FINALLY found what WILL or WONT allow Save-For-Web to 
work... It actually is how you execute Photoshop.exe ... if you try to 
run it with forward slashes in the path, Save for Web will NOT work. If 
you execute with backslashes, Save for Web WILL work.


Save for Web works with:
wine "c:\program files\adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Photoshop.exe"

Save for Web WILL NOT work with:
wine "c:/program files/adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Photoshop.exe"



I don't have Photoshop here, but perhaps we should ensure that argv[0] 
and equivalents always use backslashes?
