File Name issue

I am not sure if what I did to repair it but the problem is gone.
A copy/paste/rename was performed on the original code file and now I do not
get the error. No need for "r" or "\"...

WTH? I hate it when that happens.

I see nothing wrong in those lines as written.

Try reducing it to the smallest complete example that shows the problem.
