"web adoh"

where it should be

"web adoh '"

This may be a rare case, but it's trivial to fix. There are no test cases for the method.
> quoteArgument()
>  - does not work properly on Windows, which only treats double-quote as a quoting character;
it should not fail if a Windows argument contains single-quotes, as they are not special.
> - does not quote special Unix characters either
> stringSubstitution() does not document what the characters can constitute a key.
