That looks like it's probably it - there's some discussions in
the httpd-dev list that were along these lines. Further to this,
a location like
   <Location /hello/hell::o>
does work - what might be happening is Win32 Apache is rejecting,
via the 403, anything that looks like a leading drive 
designation, for security purposes. 

So it's probably easier to just s!::!-! or s!::!/!, as
Stas proposed ...
