Microsoft is somewhat merciful about this kind of thing.  They appear to have a
check to see if the badly formatted string is probably a path.  Probably their
check is limited to if the path starts with a drive letter and a colon.

We support handling strings which start with a / for the very same reason. 
Strings starting with a / throw an exception on Windows.  If the input string
starts with a / and contains a : somewhere in the string we should assume the
string is an absolute path.
