Follow-up Comment #23, bug #62847 (project octave):

> Makes me wonder when Octave started to morph drive letter paths into UNC

The backbone of `__wglob__` changed from an implementation from gnulib to
using the Windows API directly. 
See also what I wrote in the other report:
> IIUC, Windows is returning `\\server\share\file` for files on network shares
for `FindFirstFileW` and `FindNextFileW`. `__wglob__` (the underlying work
horse for the `dir` function on Windows) is using these functions to be able
to handle non-ASCII characters in paths. That'll probably stay that way.

The gnulib implementation of that function can't cope with paths containing
non-ASCII characters on Windows.
