Description David Karlaš 2015-03-13 02:53:23 UTC
Simple program with new DirectoryInfo ("\\").GetFiles ("*.txt"); and at least one .txt file on root of C:\(or other drive where app is started).

Throws exception with this stack trace:
System.IO.Path.InsecureGetFullPath (path="/\\aaa.txt") in K:\GIT\mono\mcs\class\corlib\System.IO\Path.cs:368
System.IO.Path.GetFullPath (path="/\\aaa.txt") in K:\GIT\mono\mcs\class\corlib\System.IO\Path.cs:280
System.IO.FileInfo..ctor (fileName="/\\aaa.txt") in K:\GIT\mono\mcs\class\corlib\System.IO\FileInfo.cs:61
System.IO.DirectoryInfo.GetFiles (searchPattern="*.txt") in K:\GIT\mono\mcs\class\corlib\System.IO\DirectoryInfo.cs:172
TestApp.MainClass.Main (args={string[0]}) in C:\Users\David\Documents\Projects\TestApp\TestApp\Program.cs:11

On .Net this works as expected.
