Summary: boost::filesystem::exists has bugs with UNC paths

Initial Comment:
boost::filesystem::exists(path("//computer")) always
fails, even if the computer exists.
always succeeds, even if the share doesn't exist.

The attached patch fixes this by:
- always succeeding for //computer (this is better than
always failing)
- correctly detecting the existance or not of a share.
(The problem here was that the code was missing an
error code check)
