I also have XP SP3 now and it still has the same problem.
It is standard Windows CMD to allow commas to separate parameters -
there is no override for this.
I will have to run the nmap command as follows:
nmap -sV -p "22,53,110,143,4564" 10.78.35.19

I cannot reproduce this with Windows XP SP3. Do you have something set
in the Windows shell that makes it split arguments on commas?
