Seems to me the problem here is that mingw is passing these paths into
Wine at all. The only apparent way to get to DOSFS_GetPathDrive is
through DOSFS_GetFullName or DOSFS_GetShortPathName so either
mingw is calling one of those functions with Unix path names or its calling
some other Win32 API function with Unix path names which then calls
one of those functions.
But how would that work on Windows? Surely mingw should always convert
unix paths to Windows paths *before* giving them to any Win32 function?
