Don't know as I've never tried it myself on Windows, but Ramiro Polla and
Patrick von Reth have been contributing win32 code. Your patch looks
reasonable if it's not a bad idea to normalize drive letter case and
slashes in paths in Windows. Any thoughts from Ramiro or Patrick?
A couple of things, though:
* The loops where you change backslashes to forward slashes evaluate
strlen(p) for each character in the string. That's not very efficient -
calculate the size once outside the loop instead.
* Setting the character after the string to 0x0 is redundant since the
string is NUL-terminated already.
