[asdf-devel] ASDF from git and lispworks Personal Edition on windows 7/Vista

The latest ASDF doesn't work well on  Windows Vista/7 and Lispworks.
LispWorks regards pathnames such as #P"C:/a-dir//anotherdir" as illegal
because of the double slashes in it.

I could fix it but it's a really ugly kludge not worth sharing.
Anyway, I could understand where the problem lies: asdf is creating
pathnames where (pathname-directory some-path) contains empty
strings. This happens for output fasl files, that ASDF is placing in


- note the double \\ after the drive letter.

Hope this helps,
