If Emacs says that it can not find a file with a path that is clearly
not a w32 path, but a unix style path, is not that more confusing to
you? Don't you get the impression that this is not yet working on w32
because no has fixed the file name? And in such a case don't you get
the impression that there might be more things involved that are not
OS independent?

After seeing many such cases at least I get that impression.
