We should be careful with these, since we don't want Geany or our gtk+ 
to be msys-dependent. The grep example shows that msys/2 has problems 
with \ as path separator (not surprising, since it's primary an unix 
emulation layer), and interpreting /x/path as x:\path won't be nice, 
except if we ship a "Geany-for-msys-not-win32-native".
