It seems so. I tried to fix it by quoting %1 in the loop, but that
breaks if you pass a quoted file name with spaces in it. So i guess
this is a WONTFIX or at least a IDONTKNOWHOWTODOTHIS ;-).
I tried googling for a while and couldn't figure out how to fix it.

+I asked Nicko Cadell (log4net admin) for a solution to this issue,
+and he came up with the following :
+"Looking at the mono batch file all they seems to be doing is to
+collect up the command line arguments and pass them to the real
+application. In fact it looks like it should work if it just takes
+the entire command line.
+There is a separate variable for this %* which includes all of the
+command line starting from the first argument.
+I updated my mono.bat to the following:
+SET PATH=C:\Program Files\Mono-0.91\bin;C:\Program
+SET MONO_PATH=C:\Program Files\Mono-0.91\lib;%MONO_PATH%
+SET MONO_CFG_DIR=C:\Program Files\Mono-0.91\etc
+"C:\Program Files\Mono-0.91\bin\mono.exe" %*
+This worked for the simple set of tests that I could come up with. I
+don't know if %* is supported on Windows 9x but it is certainly
+supported on 2000/XP/2003. I don't even know if mono is supported on
+What do you think ? Can you change the batch files to use this
+environment variable, and remove the loop ?
+Its working fine here.
