      Description

      ==========================================================================
      carlos.lucasius@canada 1998-05-05:
      Bug reported by Corel (licensee) for AWT using JDK1.1.4 on WINNT4.0.
      Corel: "Very critical bug for our product - requires immediate attention."

      To reproduce:

      (1) Execute the following code:

        FileDialog f = new FileDialog(aFrame, "Save", FileDialog.SAVE);
        f.show();
        if (f.getFile() != null)
        {
         String szFileName = f.getDirectory();
         szFileName += f.getFile();

         try
         {
           BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(szFileName));
         }
         catch(IOException ex)
         {
          System.out.println("Exception thrown " + ex);
         }
        }

      (2) When the file dialog appears, in the file name edit field type
      the full path of the file save location on a network drive -- e.g.
      \\servername\temp\filename.ext (where "\\servername\temp" is the
      network drive and "filename.ext" is the file name)

      (3) Click the save button

      RESULT:

      A FileNotFoundException is thrown on creation of the FileWriter.

      NOTE:

      This is a problem when we specify the network drive name, e.g.,
      "\\servername\temp\filename.ext". This is not a problem when
      we specify the network drive letter (assuming that the network
      drive is mapped to a drive letter), e.g., "h:\filename.ext".
