      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.
