[Today is my "whole disagreement day", it seems.] It's a fact that the
slash is NOT part of the file portion, whatever shortcuts people have
taken along the years.

That said, someone who really thinks that this is a Windows-specific
problem, even if it is not, can trivially "fix" it with an ugly hack.
Let's hope someone does and we can close this bug report forever.
