Re: [1.7] Undocumented change in accessing by dos drive letters?

document saying that the following no longer works:

For example:
	$ ls C:
	ls: cannot access C:: No such file or directory

This had worked fine on earlier versions.
This has broken several of my shell scripts so I am surprised it isn't
either documented (if a desired change) or fixed (if a bug).

I agree it's worth documenting.

Am I missing something?

Note using C:\\ does work.

C:/ also works.
