Windows treats '/' as directory separator starting with DOS 5.0 IIRC.
100% safe to convert, since a directory separator can never be part of
the file name.

It would be good to convert any '/' in the messages window filenames
too, for document_find_*() to work properly. OTOH, it may be easier to
write a real utils_filenamecmp() which assumes '/' == '\\' under Win~1.
