I'd had the second pair of braces, but LaTeX didn't seem to care, or  
at least the error didn't change, so it didn't care yet.

\string seems to do something, though. Hmmm... I'd copied the  
graphicspath part from someone else's email a while ago, and I hadn't  
deleted \string. It seems odd to me that with \string sometimes I get  
errors saying the file cannot be found, but I never got that error  
without \string. When it does compile with \string I get a blank page.
