Yes, you've run into the ugly bit in mappers, namely the fact that the
file separator changes on different platforms, compounded by the fact
that the Windows separator is a special character in regexp.

Just using ${file.separator} is not enough, because it yields just
\ and not the escaped form. (maybe using \${file.separator} would
be cross-platform).

I think I remember a fix was introduced to 'normalize' filenames to
forward slashes prior to mapping them. I don't recall the new attribute
name though (if it indeed exists). --DD
