OK, thanks! I reworked it a bit to test for Dinkumware version 405, as the
fix is really library specific rather than compiler specific. That's
important as Intel, among others, also uses that library.
There was also an issue with filebuf, which is also hopefully fixed, and I
renamed the function since it no longer always returns a narrow path.
