           Summary: Reading a .resx file containg windows backslash
                    directory separator does not work.

Fix windows paths

Description of Problem:
Trying to compile a .resx file referencing filenames with \ (backslash) in them
can not be resolved.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Try compiling something like My Nes (http://mynes.sf.net) using xbuild.
2. The resource file can not be found.

Actual Results:
ResXResourceReader looks for <basepath>..\Resources\Icon.ico.

Expected Results:
ResXResourceReader looks for <basepath>..<system dir separator>Resources<system
dir separator>Icon.ico

How often does this happen? 
Every time on unix (and probably also MacOSX).

Additional Information:
This is really a show stopper when trying to compile visual studio generated
projects, i have been bitten by it more times than i can count - and now i
finally mustered up the courage to try to tame the mono beast :)

There might be a more elegant way to fix this, i just String.Replace the
backslash with Path.DirectorySeparatorChar
