Great.  Shells used on Unix-like systems can interpret such quotes
correctly.  A pity cmd.exe is not able to do that.  What you are
seeing is fallout from the feature allowing people to use file names
with spaces.

We'll have to fix this in AUCTeX.  (I'm not sure if you could use a
different shell on Windows which is able to cope with such quotes.)
