Splitdrive under windows


#1

Hi, i traced an issue i am having to splitdrive behaviour:

splitdrive("\\\\servername\\hello.world\\filename.ext")
gives:
("\\\\servername\\hello",".world\\filename.ext")

Which results in
normpath("\\\\servername\\hello.world\\filename.ext")
giving:
"\\\\servername\\hello\\.world\\filename.ext"

This is causing problems reading files…

Thanks, Gus

Can you post this issue on Github? (or better yet, a PR to fix it :slight_smile:). Thank you!
