Description:
if you enter a normal path to a windows file in the startup variable "Stopword file" ("MyISAM Parameters") in MySQL Administrator (ex: c:\mysql\stopword.txt) the server does not recognize the file when it starts.

How to repeat:
Enter a standard windows path in the startup variable "stopword file" of the "MyISAM Parameters" tab.

Suggested fix:
Workaround:

Enter the path with double slashes (ex: c:\\mysql\\stopword.txt)

Thanks for reporting. 

Could you verify if this is a bug in the server, by editing the .cnf file manually? 

If the server has a problem with the backslash it has to be reported there. If it is meant to be that way (according to the manual) we should addapt the description of that parameter in Administrator so people do not get confused.
