[Openmcl-devel] %directory-string-list fails on real Mac filenames

I just discovered that in OpenMCL (at least, 0.14.1) 
%directory-string-list fails with files in my iTunes Music folder, 
apparently due to semicolons in the filenames.

Try #P";/"

I get Error in process listener(1): Illegal directory string ";/"

I see the comment in %directory-string-list, but this is happening 
inside a call to "directory", so I don't have an opportunity to escape 
the semicolon.

I need to fix this somehow. Would it hurt to remove awareness of 
semicolons from  %directory-string-list? I'm not clear on what they're 
used for.
