[ESS] Problem with loading source files under Windows

I can't duplicate the error on NTemacs.

I did
(setq ess-source-directory
 (expand-file-name "C:/Documents and Settings/rmh/S-source/"))

then I did C-c C-d on a new file.
When I attempted to C-c C-l it, it worked correctly.

The root cause of the problem is still that there are some single "\" characters
that are effectively vanishing.  How they got there is the open question.

Please run in a fresh xemacs with 
   xemacs -q --no-site-file
then manually load just ess-site and try it again.

If there is no error this time, then the problem is in your xemacs.ini or site-start.el file.

If there is an error, please send the backtrace to ess-bugs.  From the documentation:

13.2 Reporting Bugs

Please send bug reports, suggestions etc. to ESS-bugs at stat.math.ethz.ch 

The easiest way to do this is within Emacs by typing 

M-x ess-submit-bug-report 

This also gives the maintainers valuable information about your installation which may help us to 
identify or even fix the bug. 

If Emacs reports an error, backtraces can help us debug the problem. Type "M-x set-variable RET 
debug-on-error RET t RET". Then run the command that causes the error and you should see a 
*Backtrace* buffer containing debug information; send us that buffer.
