I guess Prince is smart enough to take care of slashes. As a command-line parameters, those file paths are coming into the Prince as strings, right? And Prince is free to do with those strings whatever it wants. And if Prince is, like, "hey, those strings supposed to be file paths, but I am under Windows now, so I'd better make sure all slashes are right ones... I mean wrong ones..." - that would explain it, right?
