Path conversion issue

Greetings, All!

Trying to find differences between local and remote file, I run into an issue:

diff.exe -cdb -x "CVS" -x ".svn" -I "\$Id.*\$" --strip-trailing-cr -- "C:\...\php-tools\GalleryClass.php" "\\REMOTE\C$\...\php-tools\GalleryClass.php"
diff: \REMOTE\C$\...\php-tools\GalleryClass.php: No such file or directory

Why it ate the leading backslash? Isn't it supposed to convert UNC path to
proper one? User's guide tell me this shouldn't be an issue, or so I read it
this way. Can anyone enlighten me on this matter, please?
