It isn't intended to be a filepath, but just maybe we assume it is 
before we get far enough for a module that handles the object to tell 
the core server that.  Unclear.

That was my top suspect.  I'll see if I can build on Windows and fix the 
logging in this area.

But, in the real world failure the module which is supposed to handle 
this has a translate hook (pretty darn sure) and would ordinarily handle 
that stage as long as it knows it is supposed to handle that request. 
And we don't seem to be getting that module's translate hook called. 
But I am pretty fuzzy in the operation of that module, so better tracing 
should probably be my first goal so there is no doubt where it is failing.
