Not a very good idea on Win95/98/ME (or any other system), it
searches for a command file
  fop list.fo list.pdf.exe
(with spaces)

On Win95/98/ME, the command processor feeds the whole command
line in one piece to the applications, therefore the JRE parses
the command line. Either there is a bug in the parser, or the
command processor appends some ugly invisible character. It's
been years since i last delat with DOS based systems, but I
believe the command line gets a \r\n ant the end, perhaps
the JRE doesn't count the \r as white space and passes it as

It would help to run a test program to see what happens:

public class TestC {
   static final char[] hex={'0','1','2','3','4','5','6','7',
   static public void main(String[] arg) {
     for( int i=0;i<arg.length;i++ ) {
       byte[] b=arg[i].getBytes();
       for( int j=0;j<b.length;j++ ) {
         System.out.print(""+hex[b[j]/16]+hex[b[j]%16]+' ');
