Hi Russell,

If I have an arguments line in the submission file as follows:

arguments  = something \"in\" quotes

then condor_q tells me that the actual submission is

$ condor_q -format "%d " ClusterId  -format "%s " Cmd -format "%s\n" Args
12345 /path/to/exe/filename.exe something "in" quotes

and if I have:

arguments  = something \"in quotes\"

then I see:

$ condor_q -format "%d " ClusterId  -format "%s " Cmd -format "%s\n" Args
12346 /path/to/exe/filename.exe something "in quotes"

Is that not what you want ?
