Subject: Web site short cuts missing "\" before file name
In the Strawberry Perl start menu folder, the shortcuts to the web sites are missing "\" before the file name. E.g., the "CPAN Search" shortcut points to "C:\strawberry\win32CPAN Search.url" instead of "C:\strawberry\win32\CPAN Search.url". I'm using Windows Vista.

This appears to be a bug in Perl-Dist, actually. It seems that in revision 3023, it dropped the "\" between the directory and filename when the .url files were moved to the win32 subdirectory. The attached patch adds the "\" back.

Message body not shown because it is not plain text.

This has been resolved now.
