Any path with a colon in (e.g. C:/foo.jam) will fail when passed into QueueJamfile on Windows.

I presume this is because of the use of the colon as a priority separator.

(also, there's several places in the documentation where you've spelt QueueJamFile with a capital F, which makes it very confusing at first trying to figure out why it's not working when you try and call it) ;-)

That is a bad bug. I suppose I'll have to alter the separator syntax.

I fixed the embarrassing QueueJamfile misspellings. Sorry about that.

Perhaps you could just check for a space in the right place?

It works fine for every other rule, e.g. Depends C:/foo : bar ;
