    W32: Don't always strip path prefixes · 05fdd097
    LRN authored
    Extended path prefix looks like "\\?\",
    and NT object path prefix looks like "\??\".
    Strip them only if they are followed by a character
    (any character) and a colon (:), indicating that
    it's a DOS path with a drive.
    Otherwise stripping such prefix might result in a patch
    that looks like a relative path.
    
    For example, "\\?\Volume{GUID}\" becomes "Volume{GUID}\",
    which is a valid directory name.
    
    Currently it's up to the user to make sense of such paths.
