Why do Python scripts no longer work with some Spatial Analyst functions?
In version 9.1, changes have been made to certain Spatial Analyst parameters that contain complex strings. Previously, the strings used commas to separate multiple values, but they are now space delimited.

- Horizontal Factor and Vertical Factor (Path Distance, Path Distance Allocation, Path Distance Back Link)
Examples of affected parameters:
