The issue here is not that Emacs cannot understand backslashes (it can), but rather that the passed argument gets interpreted as C string and thus the backslashes are lost.

The attached workaround which just doubles the backslashes before Emacs invocation works for me. Of course, it is far from a proper fix.

Ooops again, I didn't see the post a comment thing.

Well emacs gives the error in the attached text file (forgot to include it when I submitted the bug), and then doesn't want to proceed with the merge

Is this a problem? On DOS and Win32, \ and / are both directory separators, basically interchangeable.

When attempting a 3 way merge, monotone gives emacs paths with unix style directory separators:

("C:\\Program Files\\emacs\\emacs-22.1\\bin\\emacs.exe" "--eval" "(ediff-merge-files-with-ancestor \"C:\\DOCUME~1\\brian\\LOCALS~1\\Temp/mtn.left.DPG2JV\" \"C:\\DOCUME~1\\brian\\LOCALS~1\\Temp/mtn.right.UGE0ZU\" \"C:\\DOCUME~1\\brian\\LOCALS~1\\Temp/mtn.ancestor.KQMJR0\" nil \"C:\\DOCUME~1\\brian\\LOCALS~1\\Temp/mtn.merged.WK8A02\")")
