You should also test the cases that are failing from within Wine as
well.  We do have the capability to map to a X: drive by mapping a
network drive to this letter as well.

It appears that C:\ is not returning a proper value either from Windows
(which would not surprise me) or that Wine is not functioning the same
as Windows in this case.  You cannot mark this 'todo_wine' the code has
to be fixed or the test has to be fixed.
