cygpath -w for non-existent server

With non-existent server foo, and Cygwin 1.7.7 or the latest 1.7.8 snapshot:

$ cygpath -w //foo/bar

$ cygpath -w //foo
cygpath: error converting "//foo" - No such file or directory

Is that as intended?

Also, both only return after a few seconds delay, so I assume they
trigger network accesses. Is that necessary?
