What exactly do you want to be fixed? We currently support
file://machine/share syntax, and happen to support file:///\machine/share.
file:////machine/share isn't supported since one slash is dropped by our
canonicalization routine.

The problem with removing support for file:///\achine/share is that it was
the only way to use ra_local on a network share in 1.1. So we will break
peoples workng copies. Even if they can just switch --relocate, they will
be annoyed by this.
