Custom Listener InitialiseData path "Program Files" query

Does anyone know of an issue where a Configuration Exception is thrown
when "Program Files" is used as part of the initialiseData value within
a custom listener? eg:

<system.diagnostics>
<trace autoflush="false" indentsize="4">
<listeners>
<add name="myListener"
type="System.Diagnostics.TextW*riterTraceListener"
initialiseData="C:\Program Files\log.log"/>
</listeners>
</trace>
</system.diagnostics>

On all of our systems (test and development / win2k and winxp) this
will throw a one-off "Configuration Error" on the line:
'<System.Diagnostics>'. This error is cleared by simply refreshing the
page. It only happens once after the application restarts.

I have commented lines out and through trial and error testing
determined that the problem lies with "C:\Program Files\.." (other
paths work just fine (including "C:\Progra mFiles\..",
"C:\ProgramFiles\.." and "D:\Program Files\..") which all work just
fine.

Really curious about this one, thanks,
Mark
