WIN: Cannot run games stored in the root of a drive
|Reported by:||SF/the-huz||Owned by:||aquadran|
Under Windows 98SE, ScummVM seems unable to run
anything from the root directory of any drive. This rather
scuppers the chances of running COMI straight from CD,
as well as making extreme disorganisation impossible.
This has happened in all binaries Ive tried since 0.4.0,
but it was probably in before then.
When trying to start the game from the command line,
the ScummVM window appears but remains blank for a
time ranging from 15-45 seconds, which seems to
depend on the game. After this, an error
message cannot find file: `foo` appears in the GUI
(customised with CD-style messages for COMI).
Choosing Retry repeats the pause and the error,
choosing Cancel brings up the debugger.

The same happens with the COMI files copied directly to
E:\, or the monkey2 files copied there. Running COMI or
anything else from within a folder (eg. E:\comi) works
