IIUC, it works on Posix platforms by sheer luck, is that right?  IOW,
on Posix platforms, we also don't recognize this is a remote file name
until it's too late, and we only get away because the file name starts
with a slash, and so looks like an absolute file name on Posix
platforms.  is that correct?

And thanks for the detailed description of the traces.
