nice catch for me either since I found some other things which do not always work on NetWare...

on NetWare we have volumes which are silmiar to drives on Win32, OS/2; but:
the volume name can be up to 16 chars, so I will need to introduce a similar part for NetWare as is already in for Win32 (lines 122-153); and in addition NetWare can use both / and \ as separator:


all these are valid paths on NetWare, and the real special thing is the following where a servername appears in front of the volume name:


that means that we can have a slash even before the path has started....

so seems I have to hack a bit in files.c to enable this all....

now to the recent patch: can we perhaps use something like that to allow both / and \ ??
