Which version of Windows? Is this the 2.4.2 build from swish-e.org?

It may make a difference. Does it work with a physical volume such as
SWISH-E is using a compatibility library to provide UNIX compatible
directory access on Windows. There have been some strange problems in
the past. And in some cases I've seen conflicting behavior between
Windows 2000/XP and Windows 9x. UNC paths and physical volumes don't
follow quite the same rules. So if Windows is treating a network volume
similar to a UNC path it could be a problem. Also, it seems like the
rules reverse for the root directory. The Windows findfile routines try
to hide these problems so you don't see it in native programs.
