Notice that os.path.dirname() returns whatever it is given if it is given a URN, regardless of slash-type. Oddly, you have to double-up the forward-slashes (like you're escaping them) in order to get the correct result (if you're using forward-slashes). Back-slashes appear to be broken no matter what.

>>> import os.path
>>> os.path.dirname("\\\\a\\b")
>>> os.path.dirname("//a/b")
>>> os.path.dirname("////a//b")

Any ideas?
