varnishncsa -F question

I am using varnish 3.0.1 and have a question about varnishncsalog

I would like to spit out extra parameters in my logs, so i'm attempting to
use the -F command line flag.

However, my need for spaces seems to be causing some problems.

for example...

-F %h %t

(which i don't expect to work)


(and that's it)

-F '%h %t'



-F "%h %t"




-F %h\ %t


Has anyone had any success specifying a log format containing spaces?
