Commas in DFS pathname

Hi Guys,

We're noticing that an msdfs link containing a comma doesn't work e.g.

"msdfs:servername\some dir with - funny,little, chars"

I know the comma is used to seperate two msdfs links for load balancing as

Does anyone know of a workaround given commas are a valid character in CIF
directory names?
