Windows XP shortcut "putty @session" workarounds

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

As noted in ,
as of PuTTY 0.53, you no longer need to say

    putty @foo

to load the foo saved session from the command line or a windows
shortcut.  Instead you say

    putty -load foo

That's good because Windows XP throws away an argument beginning with
"@" in a shortcut.

If you _have_ to use a previous version, bizzarely, you can work
around it with

    putty  @foo
         ^^------Note _two_ spaces

What is XP up to?
