Thanks for your answers, but still i think this is not as it should be.
If the parameter is expanded by the shell, or as if it was the shell, then
the shell escaping mechanism (^ on windows) should work.
If parameter expansion takes place deeper in the program itself, then it
should know, that this parameter should not be expanded.
