When I want to pass arguments to my profile, the -a command line switch treats everything after the first word as the name of the file to edit, even when it is coded like this to ensure there is a terminating delimeter:

"C:\THE\THEc.exe -a stack active" ,
"-p c:\mythestuff\profile.the"

The doc says:

∙ -a profile_arg Specifies the arguments that are passed to the profile specified with the -p switch.

so I expected to be able to pass multiple arguments.

Later it says:

After all the above switches are stated on the command line, THE treats the remainder of the command line as files or directories to edit.

which is kinda how it's behaving... treating everything after the first word as 'remainder'.
