But that might mean some other bug elsewhere, which is simply
concealed by removing the quoting.  The quoting is probably necessary
if the Python install directory's name includes whitespace.

Can you tell where the quoting causes that strange prefix be
prepended?  I got as far as split-string-and-unquote in
python-shell-make-comint, and still saw no apparent problems.

Thanks.
