CQWP Bug

[MOSS 2007] Got the following error when I selected "Show items from the following list" and browsed to a doc lib whose display name contained a forward slash (/):
Cannot save the property settings for this Web Part. The list name is not valid. The list name should refer to a list within the specified site..."

So to workaround the inability of this SP component to recognize lists with forward slashes in them, I decided to try to filter by list ID under Additional Filters. No go again. I entered the list's QUID and no data was returned. This appears to be a bug as well.

So I settled for a Data Form Web Part hooked up to an XML Web Service configured in the Data Source Library: Port set to ListsSoap12, Operation: GetListItems; listName=GUID (including curly brackets). Had to tinker with the XSLT to get the display somewhat correct, e.g. to get the doc image to show, use <img src="/_layouts/images/{ddwrt:MapToIcon('',string(@ows_DocIcon))}"/>
