When Java Web Start is requested to put menu item in multi-level submenus:
    <menu submenu="abc\def"/>
WinInstallerHandler.getSubMenuDir() uses dir = nameFilter(submenu);
(same problem in UNixInstallHandler)
The nameFilter method is really only valid for file names.  A seperate DirFilter() method needs to be used that allows the path separator for that OS.

EVALUATION yes - fix is in both WinInstallHandler and UnixInstallHandler
