I believe we can work around this problem by having the NT platform
representation use forward slashes instead of backward slashes. I
realize that there are a few corner cases where build actions need
backslashes on NT, and I propose that we deal with those explicitly. As
long as none of the tests represent absolute paths (which would make
them hopelessly nonportable anyway), we'll be OK.
