      Steps:

      1) md c#
      2) cd c#
      3) gvim --remote-silent test.cs

      GVim starts up and displays "E194: No alternate filename to substitute for '#'".

      GVim 7.3.712 on Windows 7 (64-bit).

      The error doesn't show up if --remote-silent is omitted.

        When using the |clientserver| feature, the client (the Vim instance
        which gets the command-line arguments and passes them to the server)
        doesn't know the server's PWD so it has to pass an absolute path. Try
        passing "../c#/test.cs" with the quotes. On Windows you might also try
        "..\c#\test.cs". If neither of these work, try adding a backslash before
        the #: "../c\#/test.cs" or maybe with single quotes: '../c\#/test.cs'.

        Bram, what do you think? Bug or feature?

        Best regards,
        Tony.

        The Schwine-Kitzenger Institute study of 47 men over the age of 100
        showed that all had these things in common:

        (1) They all had moderate appetites.
        (2) They all came from middle class homes
        (3) All but two of them were dead.
