Hi Ganesh

I haven't screened this one yet, will do if/when you confirm that the
fix is good.

We should do a systematic review of all uses of the native
System.FilePath in Darcs. Perhaps a good way to do that is to replace
them everywhere with System.FilePath.Posix, see if anything fails on
Windows and if yes, selectively revert these changes and instead add a
comment that explains why we have to use the native version here.
