It *sometimes* works right.  Which isn't very useful.

Indeed.  And if you want to place a config file named "a:b:c:d" in $HOME,
doing (expand-file-name (convert-standard-filename "a:b:c:d") "~")
will not return a valid answer on w32.
The result can only be trusted to be valid if the filename is absolute.
