bug#7210: 23.2; w32 emacsclient passes malformed -dir when run from a ro

From: Paul Du Bois
Subject: bug#7210: 23.2; w32 emacsclient passes malformed -dir when run from a root directory
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 2010 16:48:11 -0700

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

1. run emacs -q
2. load-library "server"
3. setq server-log t
4. M-x server-start

In a shell:

[c:\dfp-stack]emacsclient -V
emacsclient 23.2
[c:\dfp-stack]emacsclient -e nil
  *server* log shows:
  Wed Oct 13 16:35:06 2010 server <>: Received -auth
[elided] -dir c:\dfp-stack/ -current-frame -eval nil

[c:\dfp-stack]cd ..
[C:\]emacsclient -e nil
  *server* log shows:
Wed Oct 13 16:35:23 2010 server <>: Received -auth
[elided] -dir C:\/ -current-frame -eval nil

In a non-root directory (c:\dfp-stack) the -dir argument contains a
single trailing slash.  In a root directory (c:\) the -dir argument
contains two trailing slashes.

The user-visible symptom is that files edited in a root directory have
an incorrect absolute path, one that looks like a UNC path. It causes
emacs to hang while windows times out looking for a server.

For example:

[C:\dfp-stack]emacsclient -n P4CONFIG
Wed Oct 13 16:40:57 2010 server <>: New file:

[C:\]emacsclient -n foo
Wed Oct 13 16:14:30 2010 server <>: New file: //foo.txt

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
