Subject: [Boost-build] Created bug : 2952 Windows: path.glob doesn't accept paths at the root of the current drive

After entering information for the bug, I realized that
svn.boost.org/trac has very limited version entries for Boost-Build.
I hope it was the right place to report the issue.
The problem is on Windows when pathnames are rooted at the current
drive. I was getting
error: Unknown target type EXE
The workaround is to include the drive letter, so instead of
one must specify
Based on debug output, I'm guessing the problem is in path.glob which
leads me to believe there is a potential for additional problems if
people are trying to use full path names without the drive letter on
