I just tried on my RHE3 server and it works OK. Both with a full path  
to the folder or a relative path. The lines in the script are like this:

put there is a folder "/var/www/vhosts/example.com/cgi-bin/space  
folder/other folder" & cr after tBuf

and

put there is a folder "space folder/other folder" & cr after tBuf

Both return true.

But of little help, I fear.
