That was exactly what I meant, indeed. Not sure whether it's about the shell script interpreting the argument as one string, but anyway, it gets passed to the Java VM as one argument, and Java itself has no problems dealing with long file names...

Arguments enclosed in quotes, either double or single, are passed as a single argument to the shell script. I'm not sure about Win CMD systems, but I believe that they do the same thing.
