unc name not recognized

Description

If my local directory is an unc name (eg

winserver\c$\temp) and a file is downloaded, the
program thinks the unc name is a relative directory
name and appends the unc name.
So the local file is stored in

winserver\c$\temp\winserver\c$\temp\file.dat and not
in
winserver\c$\temp\file.dat.

That's really happening, although the browser window shows
the correct path...

We are forced to map netowrk drives so that the download
works.
The error doesn't happen in the upload...

Here goes another example:


server\share\folder\subfolder\file.dat

is "exchanged" by:

c:\server\share\folder\subfolder\file.dat

I had a similar problem with the user area on my university's
novell box. It seems to remove the first / from the path, so
directory navigation doesn't work

Typing a valid UNC path in "Local Site" field has this effect:

"The path you entered could not be found!"

As a result, you can't upload files from unmapped folders.

This is a list of all UNC bugs I've found:

506389
708993
755678
804471

They are all probably related.
