In fact there are still some problems with the change I proposed: if
there are multiple devices involved, paths are not resolved properly.
For example, if I remember correcly when the current directory was D:
an ASDF system somewhere in D: couldn't be loaded because the path
"/Documents And Settings/....../.cache" was in C: and not in D: (but
device info was not included in the translated pathname). I'll try to
look at it, but a first glance at Pathname.java suggests that it won't
be easy to fix...
