This (adding extra backslashes) is the main reason for all confusion. I
personally feel PERL regex is more cleaner.
 Anyway, thanks a lot for the help in Emacs regexp, I can now work with
 GNU Emacs to access files using
UNC paths. I wish the code snippet I had sent could be added as a
customizable feature so that all
packages wanting to access files can use it. Maybe packages uses a much
lower method to access files
and they are not facing these issues.
