[Rd] Windows problem related to using shortPathName for Sweave style file

Something funky happened to my e-mail. I was trying to paste information 
related to MiKTeX and R into my message and it appears to have corrupted 
the text somehow. Anyway, the message I was trying to get across is that 
the tex file contains the path


and MiKTeX 2.7 doesn't know how to resolve it. (The Bioconductor.tex 
file is (hopefully) attached to this e-mail.)
