Please tell what version of `locate' is that, and in which Emacs
version it happened to you.

I understand that the problem happens because your version of `locate'
returns Windows file names with backslashes as directory separators
(as opposed to forward slashes), is that right?

If so, wouldn't it be better to replace backslashes with forward
slashes before the unquote loop?

If backslashes as directory separators are not the reason, could you
please elaborate about the reason?
