I don't think the .pdrc mechanism was ever "ported" to windows, as of my
knowing it is just not part of it. Wouldn't be hard to put it in, though.

No, its a limitation of pd's symbol parser, which means, within pd (not
for the startup file mechanism) filenames are symbols, and symbols with
spaces in them just don't exist. I do vote for a more sophisticated symbol
parsing algorithm, but then there has to be anyone who is implementing it.
