Is it an option to try to get it running under Cygwin instead of via
mingw?  Since cygwin arranges for all the network drives to be mounted
under /.

If Cygwin has a unique root, the app should run without any change.

Getting it run under Windows depending on Cygwin sounds like a big
challenge.  Getting running under Windows independent of Cygwin sounds
like a *huge* challenge.  Maybe getting it work under Cygwin would be
an easier first step for "pickleman"?
