Hmm... it could be that it's complaining about the spaces in the
pathname.  I guess you could try escaping them, which is what I had in
mind with the "".  I have vague memories of an email discussion with
Robert Widhopf-Fenk, who maintains BBDB and VM now, about this, but I
forgot the conclusion and I can't find the emails.  Sorry.

Cheers, José
