I think this is a *big* bug!

Whiteboard: [PDT+]w/b minux on 03/10
dougt: it turns out this is a problem with nsLocalFileWin::ResolveAndStat(). Specifcally, http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/xpcom/io/nsLocalFileWin.cpp#511 The workingFilePath == "c:", and passing this to PR_GetFileInfo64() barfs. What we want to pass is "c:\". Should I just patch the code around line 511 to check if we've got only a root directory, and then append a backslash? (It looks like there are assumptions in the rest of the file about there *not* being a backslash on the mWorkingPath.)
