We're ready to contribute a patch to fix the problems with
<Directory />. In fact, we are pretty close to a total
reimplementation of the win32 canonical filename routines. This
rewrite also switches from a recursive to iterative implementaion of
sub_canonical_filename. But, we're not quite sure exactly which cases
we should have handled in this routine. Can someone enlighten us?

Also, we're not sure we'll be able to support UNC names in these new
routines yet. But, since UNC paths can be mapped to network drives,
this shouldn't be a problem. 

Once we're clear on what we need to support exactly, we can have the
patch ready sometime between today and Monday.
