ThinStation rdesktop syntax

I spent a while struggling with syntax in the thinstation.conf file to start a shell application. Backslashes in the application path were troublesome. Here is an example of the syntax that finally  worked:

SESSION_2_TITLE="FileMaker"
SESSION_2_TYPE=rdesktop
SESSION_2_SCREEN=1
SESSION_2_SCREEN_POSITION=1
SESSION_2_RDESKTOP_SERVER=10.0.1.102
SESSION_2_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS="-g 1024×768 -u 'Administrator'  -a 16 -s 'C:\\\\\\\\Program Files\\\\FileMaker\\\\FileMaker Pro 7\\\\FileMaker Pro.exe'" SESSION_2_CUSTOM_CONFIG=OFF SESSION_2_AUTOSTART=OFF
SESSION_2_ICON=ON

That's a lot of backslashes!
