Incompatibility with respect to absolute entry_refs
|Reported by:||zooey||Owned by:||zooey|
A recent test with the Locale Kit has exposed an incompatibility between haiku and R5 with respect to the handling of entry_refs that contain absolute names.
When running the enclosed test program on R5, it shows that everything except creating a BFile from a BDirectory and an absolute path is supported (actually in contrast to what's stated in the BeBook).
On haiku, creating a BEntry or a BFile from an entry-ref containing an absolute name does not work. For the sake of binary compatibility, I think this should be fixed.
