cygpath -u converts quoted UNC paths to local

Greetings, All!

This can be considered "working by design", but it really imposes some serious
restrictions on interoperability with Cygwin, that I think can be avoided.


After some further testing, this seems to be affecting IP-based UNC paths

The essence is this:

$ dir "\\\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh"
26.10.2018  18:16               431 online.sh

$ cygpath -u \\\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh

$ cygpath -u "\\\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh"

$ cygpath -u \\HOSTING64.DARKDRAGON.LAN\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh

$ cygpath -u "\\HOSTING64.DARKDRAGON.LAN\wwwroot\ccenter\bin\online.sh"
