I guess what I don't understand is how it's both possible for
open("c:/foo/bar.exe") to succeed and for this code to treat it as a
relative posix path instead of absolute win32.  Or is that the point,
that forward-slash win32 paths are intended not to work?  That I think
is going to be quite a lot of affected code unfortunately... as I said
the only real reason I went looking here is I updated my tree to current
CVS and insight stopped functioning.
