It takes a little folding and knotting of the brain to understand that
this `!skip_dos_drive_prefix(&pos)` has *nothing* to do with the comment
`unc paths` nor with the test whether the paths starts with two directory
separators.

As a consequence, I would highly suggest to turn this into:

	if (skip_dos_drive_prefix(&pos))
		; /* absolute path with DOS drive prefix */
  	/* unc paths */
	else if (is_dir_sep(pos[0]) && is_dir_sep(pos[1])) {

That makes the code a lot easier to understand, and as a consequence a lot
harder to mess up in the future.

Thanks,
