Confirmed. This is also an issue with TC5.

The problem is that the space character is used to delimit parameters passed 
to the perl interpreter. If the path to the perl script includes a space then 
the interpreter assumes the path is shorter than it really is.

I have posted proposed patches for TC4 and TC5 that work with Windows XP and 
should work with NT and 2000 to the tomcat-dev list.
