It's impossible to open a file with joe (v3.3) when the file name is of type
",[0-9]+" (that is comma followed only by digits).
This can be a problem if you're using the mh mail program, which names
backup files in exactly that manner.

    This is now fixed in CVS: you can quote the , to get this work: joe 'foo\,12' to edit foo,12. I'm not entirely happy with this solution but it's better than nothing.
