The Windows regression tests contain lots of tests in the form
//filesystem/some/path... for native paths so there shouldn't be any
problem from Windows.

On the Unix side, I'd need more information to figure out what is going on.
For example, what Unix? What compiler? What software is the Unix system
using to access paths on Windows machines? Do you do mounts, or is some
other mechanism used? Do you have a sample of code you expect to work?
