Ah, thanks for the reminder.

Yes, there is one situation where there is a difference; if you place
the , or ; immediately after the path (ie no space between them). In
that case only ; works.

The StrongHelp manual shows that the separators , ; should be surrounded
by spaces. Leaving out the space after the filetypes isn't a problem as
neither are valid hex digits. After the path however I would advise to
always use a space.
