cmd: Don't parse colons as stream separators when splitting paths.

Fixes an infinite recursion when running a command such as "del file.txt /S"
in a directory that has some subdirectory with a colon in its name.

The filename:stream syntax can be used on native to access alternate data
streams on NTFS partitions. Such support would obviously need to be
implemented by the underlying filesystem, so there is no point in parsing
this is Wine.
