Update of bug #14965 (project gnustep):

                  Status:                    None => Invalid                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

The root directory on a unix system is '/' ... so that behavior is correct. 
This function should return the root directory of the system (behaving like
MacOS-X, OPENSTEP, and libFoundation), not the directory corresponding to

I did notice a bug in the mingw32 implementation ... it was still using the
old '~c' mangled path format we scrapped several months ago, so I updated it
to use 'C:\'

I also undeprecated the function and clarified (I hope) the documentation ...
as the only reason I could think of for it having been deprecated eighteen
months ago was that it tends to get misused by people trying to build paths
to GNUstep resources (which should be done using
NSSearchPathForDirectoriesInDomains()).  I realise that the documentation
already explicitly warned you not to use it that way, but hopefully it's even
clearer now.
