  Second, I'm not sure what you are saying,
  exactly. Are you saying that in one session
  you needed to use this [...]

Yes, but I had to keep alternating. I could never use the same directory
address style in two consecutive sessions. I had to switch to the
alternative every time (i.e., between the double backslash and the forward
slash versions of the same code).

Session 1: forward slash version works.
Session 2: forward slash version does not work, but double backslash version does. Session 3: double backslash version does not work, but forward slash version does.

Ad infinitum.

That is what made it odd.

I should add that to keep my inits portable I made the following change to
my .emacs:

(setenv "HOME" "g:/windows_home/") ;; folder on usb drive

(load "~/.emacs.d/system-settings.el") ;; contains load files for all inits

The drive letter for the USB had been automatically reassigned after the
recent partition. I changed it back to G: in Windows and everything else
was working fine. The only thing that changed was the functionality of this
code as described.
