OK, so that case will work too.
But I was wrong about the current code always working. It will work if
BOOST_WINDOWS is defined, but not for BOOST_POSIX.
To make that a bit clearer, the current path implementation has code like:
// accept native Windows format paths
The #if needs to be changed to:
#if defined(BOOST_WINDOWS) || defined(__CYGWIN__)
