Well, for what it's worth, I'm looking at it.  I'm beginning to think
I'll have to rewrite (or replace) most of the file and directory I/O
routines (in win32/dirent.c).

GetFileAttributes returns FILE_ATTRIBUTE_DIRECTORY (i.e. file is
directory) for a UNC directory where our hacked up opendir() using
stat() (Written by Microsoft, mind you) returns "File Doesn't Exist."

For now, can you map to a drive letter?  ;-)  Wheeee!
