No. Are you sure that he did?

I certainly read that as written: the leading / is not part of the filename.

Then, what are we discussing?

Using the same interpretation (though I'm not sure I agree with it):
the absolute filename does not start with a slash. Surely you don't
want to remove C from C:/my/path?

BTW, please take a look at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_URI_scheme  (even if you don't trust
the Wikipedia, the entry is quite informative).
